Today, is Black Woman’s Equal Pay Day. On average, women are paid about 80% of what men are paid. According to Forbes, if you are a woman of color the gap is much wider. A black woman would have to work 19 months (January 2017 – August 2018) to earn what a white male makes in the the same position in one calendar year.
