U.S. Women - Wear Red on Equal Pay Day!
Wear RED on Equal Pay Day to symbolize how far women and minorities are "in the red" with their pay!
Equal Pay Day was originated in the United States by the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men's and women's wages. The day, observed on a Tuesday in April, symbolizes how far into the year a woman must work, on average, to earn as much as a man earned the previous year. (Tuesday is the day on which women's wages catch up to men's wages from the previous week.) Because women earn less, on average, than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay. The wage gap is even greater for most women of color.
