We may be closer than ever to electing our first woman president, yet achieving gender equality in the workplace still seems far out of reach. The White House reports, ” Full-time women workers’ earnings are only about 77 percent of their male counterparts’ earnings. The pay gap is even greater for African-American and Latina women, with African-American women earning 64 cents and Latina women earning 56 cents for every dollar earned by a Caucasian man.” In 1963 women earned 59 cents to a man’s dollar—it’s progress but not nearly what it should be.
Gender inequality in the workplace isn’t just about paychecks either. Women face plenty of obvious and not-so-obvious biases in almost every field at every level. But then, you ladies probably already know that first-hand. And family is one of the first issues that comes up when people talk about gender bias.
