In 2009, an article appeared in the April issue of Marie Claire titled “Salary Report: We’re Still Getting Shortchanged”. The article identified the following statistics:
- For every dollar a man makes, a woman makes 78 cents. That number has climbed 1 cent since 2006.
- Fresh-out-of-college women make $15,498 less per year than the boys; over a 35-year career, they'll make $210,000 less.
- A 25-year-old female PR specialist makes the same as her male colleagues; 20 years later, she'll make about $35,000 less.
- She-EOs make $303,000 less than their male counterparts.
- Male primary-care physicians make 22 percent more than lady docs.
- Male IT workers make 11.9 percent more than geekettes.
- According to the American Association of University Women, at the current rate, we'll reach pay equity in 2040.
