The gender pay gap is a calculation that reflects the fact that, on average, women are paid less than men. In 2020, that was 83 cents to every dollar. Women of Color, per usual, get an even smaller piece of the pie. Black women were paid 64%, and Hispanic women (of any race) were paid 57% of what white non-Hispanic men were paid (according to a study conducted by the Women’s Bureau in tandem with the U.S. Census Bureau).
What’s worse is that the majority of the gap between men and women’s wages cannot be explained through measurable differences!
But why does the wage gap even exist? Tune in to learn more about this infuriating, global issue and what you can do about it.
