Today is National Equal Pay Day! This date symbolizes how far into 2012 women must work to earn what men earned in 2011.
Every year, Equal Pay Day is celebrated with educational programs, rallies, new research publications, and even Presidential proclaimations. I wanted to do something a little different, so I put together this 10-question quiz on equal pay. After you complete the quiz, I'll show you the correct answer and give you a brief explanation for each question.
After you take the quiz, post your score as a comment!
