You’re missing something

#CLOSETHEPAYGAP

It’s obvious when 21% of your outfit is missing. But what happens when 21% or more of your paycheck is missing? That’s the reality for most women across the U.S. who earn, on average, 79 cents to every dollar men make. And for non-white women, it can be even worse — African American women, on average, earn 60 cents compared to every dollar men make, and Latina women earn approximately 55 cents. It’s time to #CloseThePayGap.

IMAGINE IF OUTFITS WERE STYLED THE SAME WAY WOMEN ARE PAID IN THE U.S.

Many millennial women don’t think the gender pay gap applies to them. But even if you’re a woman at the start of your career, statistics show that the gender pay gap is likely to impact you. This is concerning — especially because the pay gap widens as you progress through your career.

Lilly Ledbetter didn't think the gender pay gap existed, either. In truth, she earned 40 percent less than her male counterparts for doing the same work.

Imagine if clothes were sold the same way most U.S. women are paid - 21% less. That would be ridiculous. It's . Show how stupid 21% looks by rolling up your sleeve and sharing a 📷 in support of with I can't believe in this day and age this is still a thing, but my god people let's #CloseThePayGap

What's missing? Left pant leg, shoes and socks...I would say about 21% of Alice's outfit. On average, women in the U.S. make 21% less than their male counterparts. In this day in age, that seems crazy to me. I hope sweet little Alice always knows her worth and will only know a future where all are treated equally. #closethepaygap #wearegapinc #equalpayday

Something's missing right? It's not normal to have 21% of your outfit missing, just like it's not okay for 21% of your paycheck to be missing either. But for MOST WOMEN in the United States right now, it is.

The issue of equal pay is nothing new. Our mothers and grandmothers felt the impact of this inequality, and without positive change, our daughters and granddaughters could still be fighting for equal pay in 2059.

Today, more women and more companies are speaking out and stepping up to close the pay gap. In 2014, Gap Inc. was the first Fortune 500 company to announce that it pays employees equally for equal work.

At the current rate, the U.S. won't have equal pay until 2059.

It's obvious when 21% of your outfit is missing. But what happens when 21% of your paycheck is missing? April 12, 2016 is #EqualPayDay- marking how far into the year women must work to earn what their male counterparts earned the previous year. Proud to work for a company where Everyday is Equal Pay Day! Gap Inc. has independently verified since 2014 that Men and Women have been paid equally.
For our collective brightest futures, let's all work together to #closethepaygap! For the best of #humanity, let every person be equally #acknowledged #respected and #payed!! Together WE CAN DO IT!!! 💪 (photo credit @chuyzapatista )
