Just before the tweet storm, join us for a fireside chat with Native women leaders and equal pay advocates. Learn more.

Why Oct. 1?

Because the average Indigenous or Native American woman has to work 9 extra months into 2020 just to catch up the average white man’s 2019 earnings. The average Native woman is paid less than 60 cents for every $1.00 paid to the average white non-Hispanic man. Over the course of a 40-year career, this adds up to a total of $1,035,360 in wages stolen from the average Native woman due to discrimination based on race and gender.
This extreme pay discrimination & occupational segregation has lasting harm on Native and Indigenous women, their families, and communities. Indigenous women deserve better. Raise awareness with us.
