Half-Paid Heroes: Working Women, COVID-19, and #LatinaEqualPay Day
Thursday, October 29, 2020, 3:00 PM until 4:00 PM
Women Other Events
While on average, women earn 82¢ for every $1.00 men earn, women of color routinely experience much wider wage gaps due to the compounding effects of gender and racial discrimination. COVID-19 threatens to widen those disparities. Join us on #LatinaEqualPay Day, the last equal pay day of the year, for a virtual event with Chicago leaders on working women, COVID-19, and the racial and gender pay disparities that continue to exist in our country.
