THE REALITY

• On average women earn 21% less than what men earn in the same job.

• In STEM women fare better than women in non-STEM fields, but it’s still not equal.

• Women in STEM earn, on average,14% less than men in their same positions.*

*For more on the pay gap and women in STEM visit the Department of Commerce’s Report “Women in STEM: A Gender Gap to Innovation” (http://1.usa.gov/1038QLQ)
