The Gender Pay Gap in Georgia (USA)
Even in the 21st century, economic disparities among women are still a problem in the U.S. and around the world. A 2012 report by the Center for American Progress stated “While the wage gap has certainly narrowed with the past generation of working women…progress has stalled in recent years. If progress continues at its current rate, it will take 45 years to eradicate the wage gap” (Glynn and Powers, 2012).
The International Women’s Think Tank is seeking to examine the reasons this economic disparity gap among men and women still exist in the 21st century. The initial research project will focus on the State of Georgia. The purpose of the study is to examine key strategies that would contribute to the eradication of the economic disparity gap between men and women. The review of previous research and literature will assist in the correct design and focus of the study.
