Halloween is the perfect time to tell ghost stories. But there’s nothing scarier than the true story of gender inequity in the United States.

At the current rate of progress, gender gap won’t close until 2119.
Know Your Rights: Workplace Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII is a federal law that prohibits discrimination in employment on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, and religion, and it applies to employers with 15 or more employees, including federal, state, and local governments. Even with Title VII’s protections, many people across the country still face sexual harassment in their workplaces.
Frequently Asked Questions about the Gender Pay Gap
Simply put, the gender pay gap is the gap between what women are paid and what men are paid. The most commonly cited gender pay gap statistic in the United States compares the median annual earnings of women who work full time, year-round against the median annual earnings of men who work full time, year-round. There are as many ways to calculate gender pay gaps as there are ways to calculate average pay earned by workers, as long as the original data source records whether workers are men or women. Though the ratio of women’s pay to men’s pay varies depending on the data source and analysis, the finding that women are paid less than men is extremely consistent.
