It’s no secret, women continue to make less money than their male counterparts. $10,000 less on average, according to a new report by Nielsen. Between the wage gap, the pink tax (yes, we’re still paying that) and the struggle to receive the same recognition as men, and it makes you wonder… What’s a girl gotta do to get ahead?
But there are bright spots. According to “The Million Dollar Fine,” we’ve entered a new era. One that is offering women a louder voice via social media, more balance in TV programming, more women taking political office, among other areas of hope.
The verdict? It’s time for businesses to be an ally for women.
There’s so much worthwhile data to go go through, this report is definitely worth the read.
