Pay what you’re paid. In Pittsburg, that’s 76% of a man’s salary.
“I’d been seeing the 78% statistic everywhere,” Schlenker told BuzzFeed News, referring to the amount of money the average woman makes compared to a man according to the US Census Bureau. “I know a lot of women don’t feel appreciated or as valued as they should in the workplace, and I thought there was something I could do to help a little.”
Schlenker, who created the annual Art Magazine, often came across “many women artists who don’t get their due,” she said. “This was a great way to work with these amazing women artists while making women feel appreciated.”
