The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap

You’ve probably heard that men are paid more than women are paid over their lifetimes. But what does that mean? Are women paid less because they choose lower-paying jobs? Is it because more women work part time than men do? Or is it because women have more caregiving responsibilities? And what, exactly, does gender or race bias have to do with paychecks?

The report explains the pay gap in the United States; how it affects women of all ages, races, and education levels; and what you can do to close it. Download presentation, click here.
