In Washington, a typical woman working full time is paid $37,932 per year, while a similar man is paid $51,272 per year. That’s a gap of $13,340. If full-time working women in Washington were paid the same as their male counterparts, Washington’s families could afford:
- 100 more weeks of food bills (1.9 years’ worth!)
- 8 more months of mortgage and utilities payments
- 16 more months of rent
- 4 more years of family health insurance premiums
- More than 4000 additional gallons of gas
