Fight for Equality this Equal Pay Day

Fight for Equality this Equal Pay Day

Let’s learn more about Equal Pay Day.

Equal Pay Day was started by the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) in 1996 to highlight the gap between men and women’s wages.  This day is set in April to represent how far into the year women need to work to match what men made the previous year.  Additionally, the day is always held on a Tuesday to represent how far into the week women must work to match what men made the previous week.

I want to be paid fairly for the work that I’m doing. That’s what every single woman around the world wants. We want to be paid on parity with a man in a similar position.” — Felicity Jones

We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn’t a reality yet. Today, women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but the average working woman earns only 77 percent of what the average working man makes. But unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change.” — Beyoncé

If you were to really look at it, the boys are still getting more money for a lot of garbage, while the ladies are hustling and doing amazing work for less.” — Tina Fey

It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America.” — Patricia Arquette

It’s indisputable that there’s a real pay gap. People can argue about how big, but that’s almost besides the point. The point is that every woman, every girl, deserves to get paid what they’re worth.” — Sheryl Sandberg

In our view, the court does not comprehend, or is indifferent to, the insidious way in which women can be victims of pay discrimination.” — Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Imagine you’re a little girl. You’re growing up. You practice as hard as you can, with girls, with boys. You have a dream. You fight, you work, you sacrifice to get to this stage. You work as hard as anyone you know. And then you get to this stage, and you’re told you’re not the same as a boy. Almost as good, but not quite the same. Think how devastating and demoralizing that could be.” —Venus Williams
