Women with full-time jobs in America make 77% of men’s salaries on average, according to the White House’s most recent data. In Pennsylvania, the average is 76 cents to each dollar. Hence the decision by designer Elana Schenkler to open a shop in Pittsburgh dubbed 76<100, which gives women a 24% discount. It enables her to sell artifacts by local artists, while bringing the gender gap pay conversation out in the open and raising awareness.
