The Wage Gap Is Real For Young Girls, Too

As multiple studies have proven, the gender wage gap doesn’t get that much smaller when you enter adulthood. The average working woman takes home 80 cents to every dollar a working man earns, according to the American Association of University Women. If you’re also a mom, you’ll make even less, too. Recent data from the National Women’s Law Center revealed that, on average, moms who work full-time, year-round, only earn 71 cents of a working dad’s dollar.
