Join Our Equal Pay Day Twitter Storm

Next Tuesday, April 4th, is Equal Pay Day—the day when the average woman’s earnings finally catch up to the average man’s earnings from the previous year.

Advocates mark this day to raise awareness about the causes and impact of the gender wage gap on women, families, and our economy and the solutions for closing the gap. Currently, women earn only 80 cents for each dollar earned by men, which means they must work nearly 15 months to earn what men earn in 12 months.

In 2017, this is unacceptable.

You are invited to join a coalition of women’s rights, labor, social justice, civil rights, economic justice and business leaders as we speak out for Equal Pay during our Twitter Storm on Tuesday, April 4th at 2 to 3 p.m. ET using #EqualPayDay. We also encourage you write op-eds and blogs on the gender wage gap and host and attend events across the country.

To co-sponsor the Twitter Storm and/or receive access to the Equal Pay Day 2017 Toolkit, complete the form.
