Stastics from huffingtonpost.com:
- The median annual earnings for working (full-time) white women is 77 cents to a man's dollar.
- For women of color, the gap and its effects are even greater: African-American women earn 61 cents to the male dollar and Latina women earn 53 cents.
- Controlling for factors like education, experience, job type and more reveals that fully one-quarter to one-half of the gap is attributable to unexplained causes.
- Women now make up more than half of the U.S. workforce -- this gap affects hundreds of millions of people and families.
