Gender Wage Gap

The Wage Gap Between Wyoming’s Men and Women: 2016

In Wyoming, since the wage gap is so much wider than the national average, it takes women even longer to “catch up.” To raise awareness of pay inequity and its causes, the Wyoming Women’s Foundation chose to release an important report, The Wage Gap Between Wyoming’s Men and Women: 2016, authored by Dr. Cathy Connolly of the University of Wyoming Gender and Women’s Studies Department with data prepared by the Wyoming Survey Analysis Center (WYSAC) at the University of Wyoming. The research was funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation through the Kids Count partnership with the Wyoming Community Foundation.

This new report provided strong evidence supporting the existence of the wage gap in Wyoming. You can download the 2018 report below.
