Equal Pay Day is dedicated to raising awareness of the gender pay gap: a ratio showing how much more a man is paid than a woman, on average, for the same job.
The day is chosen each year to demonstrate how far women must work into the year to earn the equivalent of men’s wages from the year prior.

"As a father of four daughters, I’m daily inspired by their view of the world. Particularly, I’m moved by the truths revealed by their innocent view of justice. As I was thinking of creating a video about the injustice of the gender pay gap, I realized I would prefer to hear from their hearts and minds on this issue. So we grabbed some of their friends, and this video is the result."
