Yesterday was Equal Pay Day 2017 in America. I say America, because the date of Equal Pay Day changes each year because it is based on how far into the year women have to work in order to earn what men earned the previous year.
In America, women earn 80 cents for every dollar a man earns; in Israel women earn 67 agurot for every shekel a man earns. In fact, Israel’s wage gap is one of the widest in the world, among developed countries.
In Israel, there is a growing awareness to Equal Pay Day. In order to inspire and encourage more women to know their value and ask for more, I’ve decided to share my favourite Equal Pay Day tweets with you.
