Red purse

March 23, 2011

American social activist Elizabeth Cady Stanton once said, “a woman will always be dependent until she holds a purse of her own”. The symbol of movement for women’s equal pay is becoming a red purse. Two deacades ago the first Red purse campaign was organised by the American Business and Professional Women foundation. Recently the German branch brought it to Europe. Red purse highlights the existing pay gap by representing red numbers in women’s purses. On equal pay day red purses are distributed on the streets and women carry them to raise awareness on the economic discrimination.
