Black Women's Equal Pay Day

Many white feminists celebrate "Equal Pay Day" in April to commemorate the day that a woman would have finally made as much as a man made the previous year according to the gendered pay gap. However, the April date only applies to the comparison between white women and white men.

Black women have to work until August 23 to make as much as the average white man made last year.

“The pay gap does not affect all women the same way.”

For more statistics on how much black women get screwed in the U.S., check out the #BlackWomensEqualPay hashtag on Twitter.
