This beautiful woman raised me to be a hard worker, highly intelligent and extremely capable all on her own. I grew up in a tough city and I am forever in awe of my mother’s strength and perseverance. And while we as women have come a long way since the days when my mom was raising me, it’s crazy that we are STILL having the conversation that women are paid on average 20% LESS than men. Crazier still that if we closed the wage gap, black working mothers alone would have enough money each year to either pay for four more years of food, three and a half additional years of childcare or two and a half more years of rent. Imagine what closing the gap would mean for ALL women! Let's hold each other up, stand together and speak up to close the gender pay gap. #20PercentCounts #EqualPayDay
