61% of women say they would rather discuss their own death than money

Talking about it is critical at work. Over a 40-year career, women stand to lose $403,440 because of the pay gap between women and men, and that figure rises to $867,920 for black women and over $1 million for Latina women, according to the National Women’s Law Center. The number of women who ask for pay raises is on the rise, but studies suggest they face more resistance than men.
