A 2017 report on the wage gap in Hawaii found that women in Hawaii pay 84 cents to every dollar paid to men, amounting to an annual wage gap of $7,640. "Women deserve to be paid fairly and equally for the work they do".

OR has some news to contribute to the day: an equal pay law passed by the legislature that goes into effect at the beginning of next year.

"We are closer than we have ever been to seeing the dream of ending pay inequity for women for good in New Jersey". By 2017, that number had gone. down: past year, it was just 79 cents on the dollar for that demographic, according to a new report from HR analytics and software company Visier, released Tuesday for Equal Pay Day. So why are they making less?

AAUW notes that discrepancies also depend on age, location, education levels and student debt. This is a reminder that "leaning in" and simply "empowering women" will not fix the gender pay gap.

While there is a need for systemic change, individuals, both male and female, can do their part to lobby for change.

"And as the motto goes, we want "Equal Pay for Equal Work" though we aim for this to be more than just a saying, and to be put into practice throughout Hawaii". Though change can exist on a smaller scale as in the form of salary negotiations, pursuit of secondary education and participation in increasing public awareness regarding the gender pay gap.
