Women in the U.S. who work full time, year round are typically paid only 82 cents for every dollar paid to their male counterparts. This gap in earnings translates into $10,194 less per year in median earnings, leaving women and their families shortchanged. Although enforcement of the Equal Pay Act and civil rights laws, as well as other progress for women, including increased access to reproductive health care, have helped narrow the gender wage gap over time, addressing the significant pay disparities that remain is critical for the economic security of women and their families.
