EQUAL PAY DAYS

A Symbolic Date
Equal Pay Day denotes how far into the new year women must work to be paid what men were paid the previous year. Started by the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) in 1996, the goal was to raise awareness about the gender wage gap. Since then, other Equal Pay Days have been added to the calendar to denote that mothers and most women of color face a wider-than-average gap and need to work even longer to catch up to men’s earnings.

National Equal Pay Days:
February 11 – Asian American women’s Equal Pay Day
March 31 – All women’s Equal Pay Day
June 4 – Mother’s Equal Pay Day
August 13 – Black Women’s Equal Pay Day
October 1 – Native Women’s Equal Pay Day
October 29 – Latina Women’s Equal Pay Day
