If you think black women deserve more than
63 cents to the dollar, join the
#BlackWomensEqualPay Day Twitter storm!
Would you like to work eight extra months just to get paid the same amount your co-workers get paid in a year? That’s the case for black women in the United States, who are paid 63 percent of what non-Hispanic, white men are paid. That’s worse than the national pay gap for all women working full time, year-round, who according to AAUW’s The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap are paid just 79 percent of what men are paid.
Help AAUW mark #BlackWomensEqualPay Day, the symbolic day when black women’s wages “catch up” to white men’s wages from the previous year. Join our Twitter storm on August 23, when we’ll explain the gender pay gap, including the impact of race; suggest solutions; and with your help, agitate for change.
