▼ IPU Colloquium Abstract ▼
In an era when about half of U.S. women participate in the paid workforce, when there is no longer an expectation that most families will be supported by a single-earner husband/father, when a consistent message to young women is that they can expect to work for pay for a significant portion of their lives, and when most young women in college expect to have careers, can it still be true that there is a gender pay gap?  Yes, the gender pay gap is still alive and well.  This presentation will explore the magnitude and pervasiveness of the pay gap and some of the factors that help it to persist.  It will challenge the notion that women earn less simply because of their own choices and preferences, and will explore what might be done to close the gap.
The presentation highlights work by Dr. Hilary M. Lips, professor and chair of psychology and director of the Center for Gender Studies at Radford University. Using current and historical data from the Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics surveys (the CPS, ACS, ATUS), the General Accounting Office (GAO) and other sources, Dr. Lips' presentation emphasizes the challenges, difficulties and controversies in assessing the gender wage gap within "Human Capital Models".
