Inequality in the workplace remains a serious challenge for us all, but particularly for young women. Despite girls on average doing better at school there are still more young women out of work and stuck in low paid jobs than men.

Why hold a Gender Pay Gap Bake Sale?

bake sale infoHighlight how far we still need to go to achieve equality by holding a gender pay gap bake sale. On average, women earn 18% less than men. So at this bake sale, suggest that women make a voluntary donation of 18% less. If a cake costs £1, men could make a voluntary donation of the full price, and women could donate 82p.*

If you'd like to hold a gender pay gap bake sale, we'd love to hear from you. Fill in the form below or email rebecca.richards@youngwomenstrust.org. We'll send you collection tins, balloons and posters to help make your event a success. 

*In order to comply with the law, make sure you word this as a suggested donation, rather than a price. It is (thankfully) illegal to charge men and women different prices.
