Equal Pay Day is March 15, 2022, but equal pay is only achievable if we continue to push all year long.
This date symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year. Women working full time and year round are paid 84 cents for every $1 paid to a man.
Women are working longer hours and pursuing higher education in greater numbers. Despite this progress, significant wage gaps between men and women persist—particularly for women of color.
