Equal Pay Counts


Today is April 10th 2018, Equal Pay Day which represents how long it takes within the 2018 calendar year for the average woman to make what a white man made in 2017. This averages out to just 80 cents to a dollar. The fact is that all women regardless of background, race, ability or sexual orientation are impacted by the pay gap. The above video shows you how all women are predisposed to unequal pay.




Throughout 2018, Lean In is partnering with businesses across the country to highlight the unfairness of the gender pay gap to consumers making everyday purchases. With the help of adidas, Lyft, P&G, and Reebok—all leaders in the push for equality in the workplace—we’re asking consumers to think about the impact of getting 20% less1 as they make purchases on April 10. Our goal is to raise awareness of the gender pay gap and encourage companies everywhere to commit to equal pay. [Learn more]

Save The Date: April 10, Equal Pay Day

On average, women make just 80 cent compared to women. Yet the gap starts to shift when we examine various groups of color. Black women working full time, year round typically make only 63 cents for every dollar paid to their white, non-Hispanic male counterparts. For Latinas this figure is only 54 cents, for Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women it is 59 cents, and for Native women it is 57 cents. While Asian women working full time, year round are typically paid only 87 cents for every dollar paid to their white, non-Hispanic male counterparts, the wage gap is substantially larger for some subgroups of Asian women.—NWLC

Sample Tweets:

1. The disheartening truth is that women of all backgrounds are predisposed to unequal pay. #equalpay #20percentcounts #leaninwomenofcolor #talkpay

2. 80 cents represent the pay gap for the average woman. Yet when you look at the pay gap by race, women of color are considerably affected. Together we must put an end to unequal pay. #equalpay #20percentcounts #leaninwomenofcolor #talkpay

3. Not much has changed since 1985. With a 15 cent increase, women still make less than men. Sadly, it will take at least 40 more years to close the pay gap with just 20 cent more. #equalpay #20percentcounts #leaninwomenofcolor #talkpay
