Denton Named One Of The 5 Cities That Are Great For Women's Careers

Although American women have done a great deal of work, through advocacy, lobbying, and sheer numbers in the workforce, to close the gender based pay gap, women still make around eighty cents to each dollar a man makes.

It’s worth noting that this figure is a representation of white women; women of color, men of color, and disabled people, all show an even starker gap in pay.
