Today, April 8, 2014, is Equal Pay Day. According to the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE), equal Pay Day was originated in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men's and women's wages.

Per the NCPE, “Because women earn less, on average, than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay. The wage gap is even greater for most women of color.” Equal Pay Day is a signifier of just how much longer women most work to narrow the pay gap.
