Black Women's Equal Pay Day says
Join our social media campaign on August 23, 2016, to recognize Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, and help us raise public awareness about the staggering wage gap Black women in the workforce face. Black women do NOT deserve to get paid 60 cents for every dollar a white man earns, and this is a chance to take action!

Here’s how it works:

On or before August 23rd:

1) Take a selfie holding the time card graphic you can find on posted on this event page or on our website:

The goal of the picture is to show you SYMBOLICALLY clocking out of work at 1:48 p.m.—the time (60% into a regular 9-5 workday) that the average Black woman would leave work to account for the typical wage gap if she were paid at the same hourly rate as the average white man.

We want to see pictures from ALL demographic groups, regardless of whether you are employed. A diverse group of participants will make this an incredibly powerful tool to build the nationwide solidarity we need to end pay inequity!

2) Send Atlanta Women for Equality a Facebook message with your selfie so we can include your picture as we spread the word.
3) Tell all of your friends and followers about this campaign!

On August 23rd:

1) Use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, or any other social media platforms to post your selfie with the hashtags #ClockOut4EqualPay, #BlackWomenEqualPay and #60Cents, and mention us,@Women4Equality, in your tweets. Let's make this a trending topic!

2) Share the facts underlying Black Women’s Equal Pay Day on social media using the hashtags #ClockOut4EqualPay, #BlackWomenEqualPay and #60Cents. You can find sample tweets, postings, and visuals on our website:

3) Share your own stories about pay discrimination against Black women, whether you experienced this injustice directly or as a witness.

4) Follow Atlanta Women for Equality on social media throughout the day for updates! You can find us on Facebook (, Twitter (@Women4Equality), Pinterest (Women4Equality), or Instagram (@AtlantaWomen4Equality).

Let’s work together to END unfair pay practices!
