In 1967, Kathrine Switzer became the first woman to officially enter the Boston Marathon – despite attempts to stop her as she ran. "I knew I had to finish the race, because no one would believe women could do it unless I did,” Switzer said. “I had to finish the race no matter what."

50 years later, Switzer is returning to Boston to run the marathon one more time. She's proudly wearing the...

The gender pay gap starts earlier than you think. As early as 16 years old, women are paid less at work than men—and the gap only grows from there.

"The fact that women on average are paid 20% less than men negatively impacts their lives every single day. The average woman could pay for 78 more weeks of groceries or almost a year’s more rent if she earned what the average man does. That doesn’t just hurt women—it hurts their families too."

What if women received 20% less...of everything?

It may seem crazy, but so is the gender pay gap. Women on average are paid 20% less than men—and when you break the pay gap down by race and ethnicity, Black and Hispanic women are paid even less.

Huge thanks to Funny Or Die and Hulu for making us laugh and for showing why #20PercentCounts.

Today is #EqualPayDay. On average, women in the U.S. had to work all of 2016 plus this far into 2017 to catch up to what men earned last year.

The gender pay gap penalizes women who work hard every day. It hurts our families, our businesses, and our communities. If the pay gap were closed, the number of working women living in poverty would be cut in half.
