Young Women Say Equality Needed In Workplace

WASHINGTON (AP) — About 75 percent of young women believe the U.S. needs to do more to bring about equality in the workplace. A new study finds women feel that way despite a narrowing pay gap and steady employment gains for women at higher levels of business and government.

Those women remain as pessimistic as their mothers and grandmothers regarding gender equality in the workplace. The report released Wednesday by the Pew Research Center finds that women under 32 now make 93 percent of what young men earn.

But the analysis of census and labor data also shows the gender pay gap likely will widen by their mid-30s. That widening gap is due in part to the many women who take time off or reduce their hours to start families.
