Cubicles to Cocktails: Money Talks— Know Your Worth Then Add Tax

Equal Pay Day is the symbolic day when women’s earnings “catch up” to men’s earnings from the previous year. Equal Pay Day 2018 was acknowledged on April 10 this year. Equal Pay Day is a powerful occasion to raise awareness about and organize action around the gender pay gap in your community. Though the fight to shrink the gender pay gap persists, most action is hyper-focused on the "80 cents to every man's dollar" that white women earn. However, for most women of color, our Equal Pay Day occurs months later: Black Women's Equal Pay Day occurs on August 7; Native Women's on September 27; and Latinas' on November 1.
