Hey Moji Maniacs!

Today's Emoji-A-Day post kicks off with a doubleheader: International Parity at Work Day (aka an Equal Pay Day) and the slightly less exciting No Longer New Year's Day (party's officially over, folks!). While we're shrugging off the second one, we're shining a spotlight on the first – the fight for equal pay! ✊

It's no secret that the world has a wage gap issue. Women globally earn only 77 cents for every dollar a man makes! This unfair reality exists in every country, industry, and profession, and at the current rate, it could take a whopping 257 years to close. It's not just unfair, it's downright ridiculous! 💢

Our spolight emoji is Money with Wings 💸 emoji. But hey, don't go shrugging your shoulders like our second emoji of the day. 🤷‍♀️ ‍ Instead, let's use today as a springboard to raise awareness and make a difference. 🥳

Here's how you can be a part of the Moji-Revolution wage parity:

There will be many opportunities to address this issue throughout the year, and since half of the world is female - we'd like to help you get up-to-speed on this issue, so you can be a part of the solution. Standing up for your mothers, sisters, daughters, friends - and yourself is badassery in action!  After all, when we all help each other out when things aren't fair, the world becomes a better place! 🙌

✅ QUICK MOJI BITS & BYTES ✅

  • Women earn only 77 cents for every dollar a man makes globally.
  • This gap is deeper for women of color (70 cents for Black women and 65 cents for Hispanic women)
  • This gap exists in every country, industry, and profession - it's a worldwide issue - we are all in it together!
  • It could take 257 years to close at the current rate - we have to work together!
  • Women with children face an even wider "pregnancy penalty" - it is vital we all educate ourselves to understand these issues. They affect us all.
  • International Parity at Work Day was first held in 2017 and aims to raise awareness about workplace inequality.
