Equal Pay Day:
The Reality of Gender Parity
As women, it’s important for us to advocate for other women, but it’s difficult for us to do that if we’re unaware of other women’s experiences. According to statistics, only 62% of Americans believe that there is a pay gap between men and women, but data shows the concrete evidence of gender parity.
When it comes to women’s pay equality there seems to be a lack of awareness across the board, so we wanted to make some noise about this important topic on today’s episode.
Today, we discuss the current issues with equal pay, discrepancies women experience in the work place, and the need to take collective action.
By joining together, we can make a difference for ourselves and for those who will come behind us. To learn more about what you can do to close the gap of pay inequality and speak up for other women, tune into this episode of Dear White Women.
