Info on Modern Day Sexism

  • On average, women still earn less money than men do for the same job.
  • Think about sports. Lots of people watch the NBA, but hardly anyone even follows the WNBA.

Not-So-Equal Pay

Women are still in the red when it comes to pay. According to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau statistics, women today, on average, are paid only 76 cents in wages for every dollar that men are paid. That represents a snail-like increase of less than a cent per year since the Equal Pay Act was passed in 1963, when women were paid 59 cents compared to a man’s dollar in wages. If the same pace continues, we may not achieve parity until 2042!
