To mark the first InternationalEqual Pay Day,theEqual Pay International Coalition(EPIC) called all leaders to take necessary steps to ensure pay equityis at the heart ofCOVID-19recovery efforts worldwide. Led by the OECD, ILO and UN Women, EPIC brings together a diverse set of actors and expertise to

support governments, employers, workers, and their organisations to make concrete and co-ordinated progress to achieve equal pay for women and men everywhere.

COVID-19 has made visible that our economies and societies are built upon the essential, and often undervalued or unpaid labour of women and girls. Womencomprise 70% of the global health workforce and have been on the frontlines as essential workers, community leaders, carers and social workers. Prior to COVID-19, women did, on average, three times more unpaid care work than men, and this responsibility has heightened since the pandemic given school and childcare closures, and increased care needs for elderly relatives. 

Women in the workforce have been disproportionately impacted in the short-term economic fallout of COVID-19. Workforce sectors that rely on physical customer interaction, many of which are major employers of women, for example, accommodation, food and beverage and retail services, have been hit hard by the economic impact of the pandemic. Furthermore, women are much more likely than men to be in the most vulnerable segments of the informal economy as domestic workers, home-based workers in the lower tiers of global supply chains, or as contributing family workers, meaning they have little protections against dismissal, paid sick leave nor access to social protections.

To commemorate the first International Equal Pay Day, global leaders committed to take affirmative measures to narrow the pay gap. EPIC called governments, employers, workers and their organisations, the private sector, civil society and academia to ensure that integrated policy responses are aimed at mitigating the job and income losses, and to ensure that women do not end up disproportionately shouldering job losses and reductions in incomes resulting from the pandemic.

When asked what advice she had for women fighting for equal pay, Captain ofUS NationalWomen’sSoccerteam,Megan Rapinoe,said: “it's "and", "and", "and", not one thing. We need women to fight hard. We need political will to enact and enforce legislation. We need social will. All the bills in the world are worth nothing if the world doesn't want it. We need to come at it from every angle”.

The event included a collective message delivered by allrepresentatives of theEPIC Steering Committee, includingPresidentof IcelandGuoni Johannesson,Secretary General of International Employers OrganizationRoberto Suarez Santos, andSecretary General of International Trade Union ConfederationSharan Burrow,among others,as well asheads of the EPIC Secretariat,Guy Ryder, Director General of ILO,Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of UN Women, andAngel Gurría, Secretary-General of OECD. The message called for a COVID-19 economic response that prioritises the achievement of equal pay for work of equal value as a key driver of inclusive, resilient and sustainable recovery; recognises the value of unpaid care work; and provides access to affordable services, such as childcare and healthcare.

Sylvie Durrer, Director ofSwiss Federal Office for Gender Equality and Chair of the EPIC Steering Committee, underlined the importance of partnershipsin this effort: “It is only together we can ensure that the response and recovery efforts lead to building a more inclusive and fair world of work”.
