Tomorrow, April 4, is Equal Pay Day.
We hope you’ll join us from 4-10 pm to drink up and raise funds for equal rights.
The date of Equal Pay Day symbolizes how many more days women must work to earn what men were paid in 2016. In other words, the average woman must have worked all of 2016 and through April 4, 2017 to be paid what a man was paid in 2016 alone.
On average, women make 20% less than men; black women make 37% less (so they would have to work until July 31 to catch up); Hispanic women 46% less (so they would have to work until Nov 2 to catch up). **Takes big gulp of wine.**
To honor this day and acknowledge the wage gap, we’re donating 20% of our proceeds from Equal Pay Day to the National Organization for Women (NOW), whose aim is to “achieve and protect the equal rights of all women and girls in all aspects of social, political, and economic life.”

It’s important we recognize this wage gap exists and the impact it can have women, families, and society. If you’d like to learn more, check out the National Committee on Pay Equity and join us tomorrow to Wine Down and Drink Up!
