VIDEO: Asian American Pacific Islander Equal Pay Day Conversation 2018

Women For Action is a proud cosponsor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Women Equal Pay Day. We are sincerely pleased with the collaborative efforts surrounding yesterday's campaign.

Overall, Asian American women make just 87 cents compared to their white male counterparts. However, the data is disheartening for South Asian and Pacific Islander women. Many make as low as 44 and 38 cents to the dollar.

The AAPI women group is so diverse that we really need data to understand what’s happening. Since Asians are stereotyped as model minorities— a demographic group whose members are perceived to achieve a higher degree of socioeconomic success than the population average—they are left out of policy-making decisions, research, and advocacy.
It's time to demand more. We need to put an end to the model minority myth and take a stand alongside our Asian American and Pacific Islander sisters.
