April 12 is officially Equal Pay Day, which we “celebrate” (all the scare quotes) women as a group finally catching up to what men as a group earned in the previous year (technically the precise date for 2016 is April 8).

Women almost twice as likely as men to live in poverty during retirement

Yesterday was Equal Pay Day, which marked how far into the year the average American woman must work to earn what her male counterpart earned last year.
