Kirsten Haglund to speak on disordered eating.


Pay Equity Day..the day that represents the Gender Wage here!  Women, on average, make only about 77% of what men are paid annually, so a day in April is desginated to mark the fact that women would have to work until this date to make what the average man made by December 31, 2014.  We'll be selling baked goods to commemorate this pay differential (Men will pay 1.00 and women will pay .77 cents) -- and to benefit the Center for Prevention of Abuse.
