Black Women’s Equal Pay Day

Black Women's Equal Pay Day spotlights compensation inequities along racial and gender lines.

Last year, Black Women's Equal Pay Day landed on Aug. 3. But this year, it falls on Sept. 21, indicating the gap has widened.

Recognition of the need for pay equity must consider the economic conditions within which Black women exist, addressing persisting disparities in pay and devaluation of jobs commonly held by Black women.
