This year marks 40 years of COSMOPOLITAN and to celebrate, we are going all out to show our huge, unreserved love for feminism. We think it's scandalous that women perform 66% of the world's work, produce 50% of the world's food and yet own 1% of the world's property. There are more millionaires than women in the current Cabinet and thanks to the equal pay gap, women effectively work for free from early November while men get paid until the end of the year.
That's why we want you to join the Cosmo wage war! We want
companies who employ 250 people or more to carry out a mandatory
equal-pay audit every year - in other words, to go through their books
and work out what the average salary is for women and men across
the company. Then we want those overall figures to be made public.
After all, if you don't know there's a problem, how can you fix it?
Please support us by signing this petition - and spread the word!
Read our article about what to do if you think you're not being paid
enough. There's advice about how to talk to your boss, when to make a
claim and where to get legal advice.
Catch us at WOW
