Without intervention, the gender pay gap won’t close until 2106

Despite several books and near constant-headlines about the lack of gender equity in the workplace, the pay gap persists. A new report from the American Association of University Women aims to highlight some of the ways policy makers, employers and workers can eliminate the gap.

Last year, women in the U.S. working full-time and year-round made roughly 80 cents for every dollar their male counterparts earned. And progress closing the gulf between men’s and women’s earnings has actually slowed over the past two decades. If we continue on the trajectory established between 2001 and 2017, experts don’t expect the pay gap to close until 2106.
