What is Black Womens Equal Pay Day ?

Black Women’s Equal Pay Day illustrates the pay disparities Black women face.

The day stems from Equal Pay Day, which illustrates the pay disparity between women and men.

Equal Pay Day was established in 1996 by the National Committee on Pay Equity, according to AAUW.

The day arrives on a different date each year, depending on the latest gender wage gap data.

New days were added to bring focus to the specific disparities faced by different groups of women, according to AAUW.
