Due to the gender inequality in the world, there is a large number of women that remain at a disadvantage. In the workplace, women are slammed with many more disadvantages than men are. One would be the wage-gap, as women often tend to be paid significantly less than their male counterparts. Even though both of the genders are equally qualified for the job, and may even share the same credentials, women still remain earning a lower salary. Men seem to earn a large chunk more simply due to the gender that they represent. Women earn 78.3% of the amount that men do; even with similar qualifications and accolades, men earn a larger salary because of the ideals that men can do more than women (National Women’s Law Center).
