Gender-based wage gaps in the United States

“A new report released on Equal Pay Day shows that the yearly median pay for women in America is $10,784 less than their male counterparts.”

The wage gap could buy women about 92 weeks of groceries, or 14 months of rent, or 3.7 years’ worth of family health insurance premiums.

“Fifteen million households in the United States are headed by women, and almost 30 per cent of them live below the poverty level.”
