In the EU, women are hourly paid 14.1% less than men on average. This equals almost two months of salary. This is why the European Commission marks 10 November as a symbolic day to raise awareness that female workers in Europe still earn on average less than their male colleagues.

The Equal Pay Day takes place in many European countries (e.g. e.g. Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Estonia, France, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden). The event aims at raising awareness on the gender pay gap. It has received a lot of media attention and triggered various national equal pay campaigns.
