Millennial Women Still Earn Less Than Men

14905412170_ca067664bc_zAlthough millennial women tend to be more highly educated than their male counter-parts, they are still earning less money in many careers.

About 36% of women ages 25-34 — or so-called millennials — have a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared with about 28% of men who are the same age, according to a report by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research.

Women with bachelor’s degrees make an average of $50,000 a year, which is the same as the average earnings for a man with an associate degree.

“Even the women with bachelor’s degrees earn less than the men with bachelor’s degrees,” said Barbara Gault, the vice president and executive director of IWPR.
