AAUW Analysis Shows Gender Pay Gaps in 25 Major Cities
This week, AAUW released an analysis of the gender pay gap in 25 major U.S. metropolitan areas with populations over two million. The analysis also breaks down the pay gap for women of different races and ethnicities in each city. AAUW’s report, which drew from the American Community Survey, reveals a substantial gender pay gap in all 25 cities examined, with even larger gaps for black women and Latinas. The analysis builds upon findings from AAUW’s research report The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap, which provides a detailed look at the pay gap, its causes and impact, and solutions to close it. Expanding on one of those solutions, five city governments so far have partnered with AAUW to bring AAUW Work Smart salary negotiation workshops to their cities. The latest, San Francisco, will launch in 2018.
