Beginning of Equal Pay Days in Europe


In 2009 we started for the first time to organize Equal Pay Day events in Europe.

BPW Germany had organized the first Equal Pay Day in 2008 and in 2009 at a side event at the CSW in New York BPW International has launched the International Equal Pay Day Awareness campaign. Since then more and more countries and clubs are organizing Equal Pay Day events.

In the Media - 2009 L’Equal Pay Day est la date à laquelle, dans un pays donné, les femmes peuvent estimer avoir reçu le même revenu que celui perçu par les hommes au 31 décembre de l’année précédente. En France, la fédération française de l’ONG Business & Professional Women (BPW) l’a fixée au 15 avril.
