Equal Pay Day is the symbolic day when women’s earnings finally catch up to men’s earnings from the previous year. Thanks to the gender pay gap, it takes women an extra three months of wages to make up that 23-percent difference. Equal Pay Day 2019 will fall on Tuesday, April 9, so mark your calendar!
As usual, AAUW across the nation will host special events and distribute Equal Pay Day resources to help celebrate the work that has been done and that still needs to be done to ensure women receive equal pay for equal work. Last year, AAUW members nearly outdid themselves, with more than 130 activities happening across the country!
