Women working full time in the United States typically are paid just 80 percent of what men were paid. The figure is even more dire for African-American, Hispanic or Latino women. While many occupations have managed to narrow or even close the pay gap, disparity still exists.
AAUW’s The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap addresses the issues such as the pay gap in each state; the pay gap by age, race/ethnicity, and education; guidance for women facing workplace discrimination; resources for fair pay advocates etc.
