It's been over 50 years since the Equal Pay Act and women are still paid less than men on average. In April, artist & entrepreneur Elana Schlenker opened a ‘pay what you’re paid’ pop up shop in Pittsburgh called 76<100, the wage gap in Pennsylvania. Women pay 76% of retail price on ceramics, textiles, publications, art prints and other work created by women artists and makers. A second pop up, 66<100, will be in New Orleans, where the wage gap is higher.
