The only gap we love is the one between Michael Strahan’s front teeth.
A far less appealing gap is this one: Today marks how far into the new year women must work to earn the income that men earned in the previous year.
In nearly every line of work, including female-dominated fields, a wage gap exists that affects women of all ages, backgrounds and levels of education.
In 2013, women earned on average just 78% of the income earned by men for full-time year-round positions.

At least 51 percent of the time I tend to be more:
1. Apt to meet conflict head on -or- Apt to avoid conflict where possible (choose one)
2. Frank and direct -or- Tactful and diplomatic (choose one)
3. Objective when criticized -or- Apt to take things personally (choose one)
If you selected two or more answers in the right column, chances are that you’ll be underpaid by approximately 25% of your true value. That’s because you’re sensitive to your relationship with your boss and tend to step back from pushing as far as you can or should.
