Equal Voice 'inadvertently' failed to file tax returns for nearly a decade

Equal Voice 'inadvertently' failed to file tax returns for nearly a decade Equal Voice, an organization advocating for women in politics that has faced accusations of a hostile work environment this week following staff firings, failed to file its tax returns from 2010 to 2018, a spokesperson for the organization confirms. "As you may know, Equal Voice (EV) is a non-profit organization and is exempt from income tax. EV did, however, inadvertently and unintentionally, miss filing T1044 and T2 returns for the 2010 to 2018 fiscal years," Nasha Brownridge, communications manager for Equal Voice, said in an email.

As well as the familiar equals sign (=) it is also very useful to show if something is not equal to (≠) greater than (>) or less than (<). These are the important signs to know: = When two values are equal we use the " equals " sign.

“When you file for equal pay , you don’ t want to settle anything less because this is law.

Megan Rapinoe only has one outcome in mind.

USWNT members' bid for equal pay reached an impasse during mediation with the U.S. Soccer Federation on Wednesday, but the team's star insists she's still hopeful that the two sides will eventually reach a suitable agreement.

"They're the only employer that we could have playing for the national team, we're the only employees that they could have, so for better or for worse we're tethered together," Rapinoe said on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Thursday. "I think that if and when and ever they are willing to have a conversation about equal pay that starts there and goes forward, we're always open to that."

Carl Lewis backs equal pay for women, calls Trump racist

Carl Lewis backs equal pay for women, calls Trump racist LIMA, Peru — Nine-time Olympic gold medallist Carl Lewis said Monday that female athletes deserve fair and equal pay and criticized President Donald Trump for being "racist" and "misogynistic." Lewis spoke in the Peruvian capital of Lima, where he will present the 100-meter and long jump medals at the Pan American Games. He also said that he became an athlete thanks to his mother, who competed in the first Pan Am Games in Buenos Aires in 1951. "If I didn't have a strong woman in my life, I wouldn't be sitting here today," he said at a press conference with Leroy Burrell, a former world record-holder in the 100 metres. "My mother was a pioneer." The U.S.

Newton is so enlivened by HBO’s commitment to pay equality , in fact, that she vowed Thursday evening to turn down projects that offer her anything less in the future—meaning that any filmmakers and producers hoping to pay the Maeves of the world less than the Bernards need not apply.

Rapinoe added: "We won’t accept anything less than equal pay. We show up for a game, if we win the game if we lose the game if we tie the game, we want to be paid equally, period."

Meanwhile, Rapinoe's teammate, Christen Press said on NBC's "Today" that the group was hopeful heading into mediation but hinted the USSF isn't taking talks seriously.

"We were very hopeful in our discussions with them that they were going to take our proposals and our positions seriously, which is simply that every game that we play, we get compensated the same way a man would for playing or winning that game," Press said, according to ESPN's Graham Hays. "And it broke down right there."

The World Cup winners filed a lawsuit against the USSF in March, with the women's team asserting they've been subjected to years of "institutionalized gender discrimination."

Although both sides had hoped to avoid going to court, the outcome of Wednesday's meeting could result in a jury trial, which Molly Levinson, a spokesperson for the players, said the group "eagerly looks forward to."
