Gender pay gap figures don't adjust for job choice and duration, which all influence pay.

Things have gotten better in the ensuing years, but women in New Jersey still earn less than their male colleagues. "Because if we're talking about women, we are stronger together".

On average, white men are offered the highest salaries and black women are offered the lowest salaries.

After years of speaking out about the pay disparity in women's and men's tennis, Venus Williams was finally vindicated in 2007 when Wimbledon finally made a decision to give equal cash prizes to men and women. Similarly, that's the story for companies that pay women an average of 21 percent less than men, a point that Jet.com is driving home in honor of Equal Pay Day by literally cutting up the products it sells on its site.

The Jane the Virgin star partnered with Luna Bar for Women's Equal Pay Day to support her fellow women, as she was raised to do.

"Environmentalists don't have to demand equal pay and affordable child care; labor movements aren't expected to call for the abolition of rape culture", Katha Pollitt pointed out in a March piece for the Nation.

And since women make three quarters of family purchasing decisions, it means less money is spent in our local economies.

Mayne says we are making slow progress in Utah.

The prominent feminist leader urged legislators to be on the "right side of history" and raise New York's minimum wage for fast food workers.

In January 2016, state lawmakers closed a loophole some employers were using to justify paying men and women different salaries for the same work.

Discrimination may also play a role, Pew said. We know that when you control for education and experience, the gap is almost unchanged. We also need to be mindful about how we explain the sources of the gender pay gap, and avoid suggesting women aren't working as hard as men. His bill requires employers to pay employees equal wages for jobs that require equal skill, effort and responsibility and are performed under similar working conditions.
