Equal Pay Day
The meaning behind this observance is clear: a reminder that women still do not earn the same as men in the United States. However, there is an interesting reason for selecting March 15: it is how far into the year the average woman must work to earn as much as the average man did the previous year. But there is good news here; the date keeps moving earlier and earlier every year, signifying how the wage gap is closing.
