Women in the Czech Republic earn on average 18,9 % less than men. Based on this, the Czech Republic belongs to the worst countries in the EU in this matter. The conference Equal Pay Day (EPD), taking place from March 26 to April 1, 2021, is trying to fight this serious issue.
Inequality of men and women is a topic that should be discussed by all. Unfortunately, not all the people are familiar with the severity of this issue. Thousands of organizations and campaigns all across the planet are trying to introduce the public to the importance of this topic. In the Czech Republic, one of these organizations is, Business & Professional Women CR z.s (BPWCR). This year, BPWCR is organizing the 12th annual Equal Pay Day conference in March, with the name “Count with us” to fight this serious problem.
