Red Bag Day 12 February 2020
Red Bag Day marks the period of extra days in the current year which women need to work to achieve the same wages that men earned during the previous financial year. The day recognises how much longer women have to work to earn the same as men in one year. The day is marked in many countries around the world and the day varies depending on the gender gap in any particular country.
Equal pay for work of equal value is not just about women getting the same pay as men for the same job, but also women getting the same pay as men for doing a different but comparable job. That is, a job involving comparable skills, years of training, responsibility, effort and working conditions.
