Gender Wage Gap: Very complicated issue. Where do you stand?

Ellen Van Daele's curator insight, March 22, 2015 2:59 PM

The gender wage gap is a complicated and controversial topic. This article discusses the wage gap with Goldin's research and explains that there is more to this issue than it seems. The statement most people make is that women make 0.77$ to a man's 1$. This is not completely true because it is only for the complete average person. It does not apply to the people with the highest income and lowest. 

 

There are so many factors that go into the wage gap. Occupation, age, work hours, and so many more. Goldin's research shows us that there is a difference in the pay of women and men, but it also has to do with the fact that two thirds of the minimum wage workers are women and what fields women are most prominent in.

Gender gap in science, technology, engineering

Gender gap in science, technology, engineering | gender | Scoop.it

There’s growing and well-founded concern about the gender gap in science, technology, engineering and math fields, particularly when it comes to women of color. Women’s participation in computer science careers has actually decreased since the 1980s. Right now, about 20 percent of all programmers are women and while women make up 57 percent of undergraduates they represent only 18 percent of the computer science majors.
