Gender and Race Determine the Worth of Your Degree
Though women might be earning more undergraduate degrees than men, we are still being paid less than them at every level of our educational attainment. A woman would have to have a PhD to make more than a man with a Bachelor’s degree. Other charts in this article demonstrate that a pay discrepancy also exists between persons of different races, so women of color can expect to get paid significantly less than their similarly credentialed white colleagues.

The Wealth Gap—Race Defines It, But So Does Gender

As the bare bones of a job recovery manifests, men are virtually the sole benefactors of its gains. According to a recent Time Magazine article: “not only are men outpacing women in finding jobs; they’re doing it in sectors that are historically female-dominated. According to Pew, employment trends have favored men in all but one of the 16 major sectors of the economy, including retail trade, education and health services.”

For African American women and their families, the situation remains bleak. An analysis by the National Women’s Law Center details how black women lost over twice as many jobs during the first two years of the recovery as black men gained, directly undermining their daily lives, much less their ability to create and maintain wealth.
