BPW/PA Equal Pay Day Quilt
In recognition of Equal Pay Day 2005, and to show solidarity for the fight to end wage discrimination, the Indiana, PA Business and Professional Women's Club initiated a quilt project know as "Stitching to Close the Gap - It Just Makes CENTS". The project began in the Summer of 2004, when all local clubs in the BPW/PA Federation were asked to submit at least one quilt block. The Quilt is comprised of 100 blocks from across Pennsylvania and is 12 feet x 12 feet in size. The Quilt, which has no binding, will remain unfinished until equal pay has been achieved. The Quilt was first displayed in the Rotunda of the Pennsylvania State Capital Building on April 19, 2005 - Equal Pay Day 2005 and remained on display in the Capital for the remainder of April 2005."
