Over 10 months, we are celebrating 10 years in business by highlighting 10 organizations committed to helping women succeed… And asking you to donate (at least) 10 bucks to each of them.
This month, we’re celebrating the work of Ladies Get Paid, an organization dedicated to helping women advance their careers. Unfortunately, the organization is facing a bull$h!t lawsuit for gender “discrimination” and they need our help to keep up their fantastic work.
Ladies Get Paid‘s mission is to close the earnings gap by providing women with the resources they need to advance their careers and get paid what they deserve. Their educational endeavors exist both online and offline and in 18 months, they’ve cultivated a community of over 20,000 women worldwide.
Ladies Get Paid wanted to create a space that was safe for female and non-binary identifying individuals due to the sensitive nature of the topics they discuss including workplace harassment, and sexism. Unfortunately, despite their amazing progressive work, last year Ladies Get Paid was sued by a group of men who regularly target similar organizations who work to fight for equality. According to Ladies Get Paid, “they exploit the Unruh Civil Rights Act, a law intended to protect the very people they sue, and have brought more than 300 suits like the one against Ladies Get Paid, including one against the Violence Against Women Act.” This group sued Ladies Get Paid’s founder Claire Wasserman, and six of ambassadors who also help organize their events.
Ladies Get Paid is a 2 person start-up with limited funding, much like the organizations that they are trying to help with their work. This is exactly why they need all the help they can get.
