Episode 49 (The Gender Pay Gap)


Many of us are familiar with the gender pay gap. Women earn less than men with the same position or responsibilities. But we hear less about the impact this has on women, their families, and the economy as whole. Today we will talk about the gender pay gap and other financial and economic barriers women face in the United States.

In this episode we were joined by three guests:

Starre Haas, University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service student and National Program Manager, VoteRunLead

-Maria Jones, American Association of University Women, Arkansas Chapter President

-Martie North, Arkansas Advocates board member and Senior Vice President of Community Development at Simmons Bank
