Red Bag Day Thursday 18 February

Red Bag Day, established in 1988, draws national and international attention to the wage disparity between women and men and women of colour. The red bag theme symbolizes how far women are “in the red” with their pay. The Federation of Business and Professional Women (BPW) NZ are leading this awareness raising day for the Pay Equity Challenge Coalition.

BPW NZ have a well organised programme for the day in centres from Invercargill to Northland and are selling the red bags at shopping centres. A full list of these activities will be posted here shortly.

Here is some further information about the origins of Red Bag Day and BPW’s involvement.
