Tuesday is Equal Pay Day in the U.S., the 10th year of the observance of the date that symbolizes how far into the year the average woman must work before earning what the average man earned in the previous year.

In Arkansas, the figures indicate women make about 75 percent of what men make. The Arkansas Equal Pay Coalition has come up with a nice way to observe the day. Participating businesses will charge women 75 percent of the going price for their goods.

An admirer of Loblolly Creamery alerted me to the deal. Other participants include  ZIN urban wine & beer bar, River City Coffee, Flyway Brewing, Sweet Candy + Gifts, Red Mango - Little Rock and Muse & Render
