Updated May 17, 2016 12:59 p.m. ET

On average, American women earn less than their male peers. Highly educated women fare worst of all. A Wall Street Journal examination of pay in 446 major occupations found that women in many elite jobs earn well below men, with professions such as doctors, compensation managers and personal financial advisers among those showing the widest earnings gaps.

Type of Lead: Summary


The focus of this article is on the woman in America who are getting paid.


Women get paid less than men especially in elite jobs such as doctors and compensation managers.


This happens in America according to this article.


This article was written on March 17, 2016, but unequal pay has been happening for a long time and is still going on.


Women with jobs such as doctoring, compensation managers and personal financial advisers get paid less because they have higher paying jobs.


Bosses do not pay the women as much money as the men. Also, the higher paying job they have, the more of a difference there will be between the amount of money a guy makes versus how much a woman makes.

Concluding Statement

American women with elite jobs are paid less than men with jobs such as doctors, compensation managers and personal financial advisers.
