Work/ Career

I need to know how much the average American woman makes, compared to the average American man (ie. $.75 to the dollar, etc.). Thanks, Scott

If my memory serves me correctly--women make .72$ for every 1.$ earned by men. Of course, this statistic is an average and it does change dramatically when you start looking at race and education, etc... To confirm my assumption and to explore all of the more specific stats, I just you contact the Bureau of Labor Statistics in Washington, DC. You can also find this information in a book entitled: The American Woman: An Almanac, which is published every year or two (we have it at the Feminist.com Bookstore) -- and you may be able to find it at the National Committee on Pay Equity, which is located here at Feminist.com.
