Equal Payday. Message from Megan Radavich Director of Programs & Advocacy

Across the globe, women are paid less than men. This gender pay gap is the result of direct discrimination in which women are paid less than men for doing the same job and in the undervaluing of women’s work and the segregation of the labor market. In response to these inequalities, many countries now observe Equal Pay Day, the significance of which varies from country to country. In the United States, Equal Pay Day is observed on the 12th of April, the date women must work into the new calendar year to earn what men earned the previous year. In other countries, Equal Pay Day is observed later in the year to signify at which point women are no longer paid for their work, compared to men. see attachment for more
