Equal Pay: For Us Today, For Them Tomorrow

This year, the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) is launching an ambitious public education and awareness campaign for Equal Pay Day on March 31, 2020. The multi-media and multi-platform campaign will highlight the impact of wage inequality on the lives of working women, their families, and communities. The campaign also focuses on women and communities that are often left out of national conversations on equal pay—Transgender, formerly incarcerated, and immigrant women.

We hope to spark dialogue, expand our communities and understanding of the impact of wage inequality on different groups of women, and accelerate the closing of the pay gap. It should not take another four decades to achieve pay parity for women, or more than a century for Black and Latina women. With sound public policies, more employer accountability, and culture and narrative change, we can make pay equity a reality in our lifetimes.
