Pay Equity Bake Sale for Equal Pay Day

11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Idaho Commons, Outside Plaza

Equal Pay Day was originated by the National Committee on Pay Equity in 1996, as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men's and women's wages. This date symbolizes the extra months women must work in 2011, added to their 2010 incomes, to equal what men earned in 2010. Stop by the Women's Center's booth outside the Idaho Commons to purchase homemade baked goods, learn more about Equal Pay Day, and find out how you can be involved in helping to work toward greater economic, social and political equality for all. Delicious treats for sale cost $0.78 for women and $1 for men. For more information, visit www.pay-equity.org/day.html.

The play is set in the mythical village of Szechuan, China, and the actors portray Chinese characters. Rather than focusing on “slice of life” realism, the style of this play focuses on theatricality (making the audience acutely aware that they are in a theater watching actors) to emphasize that the play is not real.
