A WORKING WOMAN EARNS 77 CENTS FOR EVERY MALE DOLLAR. In the twenty-first century, the gender wage gap still affects the daily life of women throughout the country, at every economic level, from cashier to CEO. Is it fair? No. Can it be stopped? Absolutely. In this intelligently argued and carefully researched book, Evelyn Murphy, Ph.D., examines how much women (and their families) lose over a lifetime to the wage gap, knocks down the myth that women "choose" to make less, and documents the widespread discrimination that's holding down women's pay. But here's the good news: The wage gap can be closed. Having served as an economist, politician, public official, and corporate officer, Murphy has a 360-degree view of the problem -- and of the solution. Read this book -- and get even.
