• Tuesday is Equal Pay Day

    Women must work this far into the new year to match what men earned last year.

    Tuesday is Equal Pay Day—an annual marker of how far into the new year women must work to match what men earned in the previous year. On average, full-time working women earn just 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. Unless things change, that reality leaves women and their families a step behind in the pursuit of the American dream.

    In honor of Equal Pay Day, we're asking that everyone get the word out about this critical issue—check out these graphics, and then show everyone that you #StandWithWomen by posting them on Facebook today.



    There's another big reason to get involved today. In the next few days, the Senate will cast a vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act, which will take a big step forward in addressing gender disparity in pay.

    This isn't just a women's issue—it affects millions of American families.

    Unless things change, girls who dream of becoming chefs, physicians, elementary school teachers, police officers, physical scientists, or various other professions will earn less on average than boys who dream of exactly the same thing.


    That's not right, and we have a responsibility to help change it. Spreading the word is a great way to spark a conversation, and that's a huge first step. Stand with women on National Equal Pay Day and share these images today.
