Gender pay gap

The gender pay gap — alive and well, unfortunately

Rounding it up

  • Women are more educated and employed than ever, yet the pay gap between men and women, persists.

  • While the gender pay gap affects all women, it impacts women of colour hardest.

  • Many societal and economic factors contribute to the gender pay gap, like industrial distribution and unconscious bias.

  • To bridge the gender pay gap, we as a society must address racial and gender discrimination, eliminate double standards at home and at work, and be more transparent with pay.
