Black women are out here getting an education, starting businesses from the ground up, and being the breadwinners of their families—yet their bank accounts are far emptier than their male counterparts. And while white and Asian women are getting closer to equal pay, black women are being left behind.

Whether it be Issa Rae or Serena Williams, several of our favorite black celebs came through for equality! See all the stars that are supporting #BlackWomensEqualPay in the gallery above.
