It's true! Recent census data confirms that still today, women make #78cents to every dollar that men makes. To earn the same amount, on average women must work a full extra day each week to be equal. It is time for change. We challenge you to wear red today to symbolize how far women and minorities are "in the red" with their pay.
The National Committee on Equal Pay has launched the Equal Pay Day Campaign to keep the conversation going! To learn more visit: http://pay-equity.org/day.html. Share our image using #78cents and tag @shecampaign and most importantly, if you are empowered, contact your local House of Representative or Senator and encourage them to co-sponsor bills to change the wage gap.
