The Gender Pay Gap by the Numbers
April 2 was Equal Pay Day. That means women had to work all of 2018 and until this day in 2019 to catch up with what men earned in 2018 alone. No matter what their job, how much education or experience they have, or the number of hours they worked, women are still paid less than men.1 Get the facts about the gender pay gap and its impact on women and their families.
“Equal pay for women is critical, but the pay gap is only part of a larger problem. Women face an uneven playing field in the workplace: they are less likely to be hired and promoted, receive less support from managers, and get less access to senior leaders.”
The pay gap is also hurting women globally.
On average, women are paid 23% less than men worldwide.15
