Today is Equal Pay Day, when women finally “catch up” to men’s earnings during 2012.  It takes the average woman an extra four months to earn as much as a man in a single year.  This, of course, is ridiculously unfair.  Every year, it astounds me how we could be so advanced as a country and yet still be this backwards on an issue.  I’ve put an infographic below that illustrates exactly what’s at stake here.
