According to a state-by-state analysis by the National Partnership for Women and Families, women working full time in Minnesota get 83 cents for every dollar paid to a man based on median income. For Latinas and black women, that gap is even bigger.

"Women earn only 81 cents to a man's dollar in Hawai'i, and it's getting wider". This is true even across similar occupations - for example, women doctors make about $20,000 less than their male counterparts - and education levels. Even though this is a huge difference in California within pay, the state is still considered one of the top three most equal paid states alongside NY, where Latina and Black Women are paid $21-27 thousand less than men.

Not all of the gender wage gap can be explained by occupational choice, however.

Yet, in spite of abundant evidence, the chorus of gender wage gap denial continues-men are almost twice as likely to believe it's just not real and one out of three Americans don't even know it exists, according to new data from Lean In and SurveyMonkey.

Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women make 87 cents for every white man's dollar, according to the organization, and therefore AAPI Equal Pay Day is on February 22. They make 54 cents to the dollar. According to Voice of America, the wage gap is slightly worse this year than last year. "Equal pay matters, and by eliminating the gender pay gap, we can improve the lives of women and their families".

Some of Canada's largest banks, engineering firms, retailers and other companies pay their female British employees substantially less than their male counterparts and give out lower bonuses, according to gender pay disclosures filed in the United Kingdom.

Although the federal law was approved in 1963, Reinhardt concluded that the "financial exploitation of working women embodied by the gender pay gap continues to be an embarrassing reality of our economy".

"Prohibiting city departments from asking job applicants about salary history during the hiring process eliminates the possibility of basing wages on a worker's previous pay and continuing the cycle of wage inequality", Choi was quoted as saying.

"I can tell you we keep track of our hours". The one thing that has not changed is this expectation that when couples have children, it is the women who are going to step back and take care of them.
