Did you know that on average, women make 81 cents to the $1 that men earn? TB12 is joining Venus Williams to fill in the gap this March and pay the #PrivilegeTax by donating 19 cents from every order on our site to Girls Inc. of Greater Los Angeles, a charity committed to inspiring girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
Venus Williams has helped pave the way for new generations of women and expanded her fight for equal pay outside just the tennis world. Even today, as the social justice movement has come to the forefront, the movement for women’s rights continues in lockstep with equal pay as just one element of the overarching issue of inequality. Here at TB12, we are joining her in the fight to close the gender pay gap by implementing the #PrivilegeTax on our own website.
All Women’s Equal Pay Day is March 24, 2021. This date symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year. Women working full time and year round are paid 81 cents for every $1 paid to a man. Women are working longer hours and pursuing higher education in greater numbers. Despite this progress, significant wage gaps between men and women persist—particularly for women of color. Help us support Venus and the #PrivilegeTax and we’ll donate 19 cents when you shop with us this month.
