Women's Equal Pay Day

82 cents: that’s how much women in the U.S. who work full time, year round are paid for every dollar paid to men. 

Women’s Equal Pay Day marks the day into the year on which it takes for women on average to earn what men did in the prior year.

That’s 15 months. Or, if you look at a typical 9:00-5:00 work day, women start working for free at 2:40 p.m.  And, the situation is worse for working moms, and women of color, who reach pay equality much later in the year.
