Did You Know?

  • A women’s earnings are on average $0.80 to each dollar men earn. (1)
    The gap is the result of many factors, including occupational segregation, bias against working mothers, and direct pay discrimination. Additionally, such things as racial bias, disability, access to education, and age come into play.
  • No matter how you analyze it, the gender pay gap is harmful to women’s economic security. (2)
    Persistent earnings inequality for working women translates into lower pay, less family income, and more children and families in poverty.
  • When given the chance, women are as likely as men to negotiate their salary—but that opportunity doesn’t present itself as often for women. (3) When women feel empowered and when objective information is available prior to a pay-raise negotiation  (the salaries of colleagues and peers in the same industry, etc.) women perform better at the bargaining table.
