In America, women are paid 20% less than men, but did you also know…
- Black women make 37% less than their male counterparts, while Hispanic women make 46% less than men!
- If we closed the gender gap today, a Hispanic woman could earn $1 million more over the course of her career. Meanwhile, a black woman would be able to afford an additional 14 months of mortgage payments.
