Women need one degree more than men to earn equal pay, report finds

By Katie Kindelan,

Women with equal education, the same college major and the same occupation as men earn only 92 cents for every dollar earned by men, according to a new report.

A woman needs one more college degree than her male peers to earn the same salary, the Georgetown University report found.

“Women have been sold a false promise that education is a solution or a pathway to opportunity,” Nicole Smith, one of the reports co-authors, told ABC News. “Instead, significant barriers still prevent women from earning the same as a man who is equivalently qualified.”
