Black Women's Equal Pay Day

Aug 7th - All Day

Help us draw attention to wage disparities on Black Women’s Equal Pay Day!


Help us draw attention to wage disparities on Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, which will take place on Tuesday, August 7—the day when black women’s pay finally catches up to what Caucasian, non-Hispanic men were paid last year.

While black women make substantial contributions to the U.S. economy, they face considerable disparities in the labor market. On average, black women are paid 63 cents for every $1 paid to Caucasian, non-Hispanic men, and are overrepresented in jobs with little job security, few benefits, and limited opportunity for advancement. These poorer quality jobs, combined with restricted access to unions in the states in which black workers are concentrated, hinder access to economic security and overall well-being.

Please get involved and help us draw attention to this economic disparity by joining the Twitter storm (#BlackWomensEqualPay and #Demandmore) on Tuesday, August 7 at 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern Time. You can get more information here.
