The Woman in the Room is back and she wants her money.

The advocacy project, started last fall by a group of women in tech and advertising in response to workplace bias, has a new initiative for Equal Pay Day, which this year falls on April 10. The Woman in the Room group is inviting workers to send anonymous emails from the Woman in the Room address to their bosses, demanding action on equal pay.

"We're asking for raises or equity, or spot bonuses until they can get their sh*t together and pay women equally," reads an email the group sent to members of the press on Monday.

Since the Woman in the Room's poster project in October, in which supporters could download and print empowering posters with missives such as "Don't Re-state My Idea As Your Own" and "I Don't Need It Man-splained," calls for equality have only intensified. Celebrities such as Uma Thurman and Angelina Jolie have told their stories and voiced their support of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.

Check out another Equal Pay Day idea from the National Organization for Women that uses t-shirts to (sadly) imagine a day when pay equity is a reality.
