A new study done by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research finds that among the 20 most popular occupations for women workers, they only out-earn men in one field: bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing clerks. Among secretaries and administrative assistants, women make up 96% of workers but earn 86% as much as men. Women account for 54% of financial managers, but they earn only about 66% of what men in that occupation make.
The pay and gender gaps also persist in jobs dominated by men. Approximately 25% of chief executives are women, and they earn only 69% as much as male executives. Meanwhile, women with professional degrees are paid just 67 cents for every dollar paid to men with professional degrees, according to the National Partnership for Women & Families.
