Gender Segregation Within Industries – Car

A- A A+

Industries are still gender segregated.  Women often fill lower paid roles within industries.  For example, in law men are more likely to be lawyers (higher wages) and women are more likely to be paralegals (lower wages).

•As a 40-year-old woman working in science and engineering, your character is likely to be paid $0.88 for every dollar men make in science and engineering fields.
