The Gender Wage Gap in 2017

U.S. women working full time, year-round are paid just 80 percent of U.S. men’s median earnings—a gap of 20 percent. In Pennsylvania, the gap is 79%. AAUW’s The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap succinctly addresses these issues by going beyond the widely reported 80 percent statistic. 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.
