Around the world, women are on the frontlines of the #COVID19 response, yet they are paid about 11% less than their male counterparts. On #EqualPayDay & every day, join in demanding equal pay.
Why are women relegated to lower-paid work? Why do so many women work part-time? Why do women see their wages decrease with motherhood? Equal pay is essential not only for women, but to build a world of dignity and justice for all. #EqualPayDay
Closing the gender pay gap can help us #EndPoverty for all. #EqualPay for equal work is not just a worker's right, it's also an economically smart move.
Friday is the first-ever International #EqualPayDay. A woman’s payday shouldn’t be a reminder of an unjust world. More from on closing the gender pay gap.
