“Celebrate” Equal Pay Day with AAUW on Twitter!
Time: 2–3 p.m. ET
It’s that time of year again — soon women will come together to “celebrate” Equal Pay Day. The typical woman working full time, year-round in the United States is paid just 80 cents for every dollar a man is paid, which means she has to work until April 4, 2017, to be paid as much as the typical man took home by December 31, 2016. Sound fair to you?
Join @AAUW and equal pay advocates for an #EqualPayDay Twitter storm on Tuesday, April 4. We’ll be raising awareness — and our voices — to urge for action to ensure that ALL women are paid what they’re worth. Use the sample tweets and images below to spread the word that women and families can’t afford to wait for equal pay!
This year AAUW has observed or will observe the following additional equal pay days.
March 7, 2017
Asian American Women’s Equal Pay Day
May 2017 (exact date TBD)
Mothers’ Equal Pay Day
July 31, 2017
