Equal Pay Day for ALL Women should be on December 31, but it's not. The average woman must work far into the next year to earn what the average man earns the previous year. 


EQUAL PAY DAYS 2017

Dates are based on 2015 U.S. Census data on median earnings for full-time, year-round workers. Because they are observances, adjustments may have been made to avoid weekends and holidays. Equal pay figures for the latter Equal Pay Day dates may be updated in September 2017 after the 2016 Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage and Supplemental Poverty Measure Report is released.

*On Tuesday, April 4 – Equal Pay Day, 2017 – women’s, labor, and civil rights advocates will participate in an #EqualPayDay Twitter Storm at 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET to mark the day when the average woman’s pay finally catches up to the average man’s pay from last year. We are asking the public to download a photo of themselves holding a state-specific sign -- “Another [INSERT State]ian for Equal Pay” -- and share it on social media using #EqualPayDay and including the twitter handle of their local, federal, and or state lawmaker. State-specific graphics and sample tweets, as well as background materials and other shareable graphics, can be found at HERE or by following #EqualPayDay.
