The gender pay gap is the difference between what men and women make for the same work. Currently, women on average make 82 cents for every dollar men make. Due to the pandemic's impact on women in the workforce, the World Economic Forum estimates it will take 136 years to close the gap at the current rate of change. This is up from 100 years in 2019. The pandemic has added 36 years to the time that women and men would have pay equity.
