Women comprise half of the paid workforce and women extend more unpaid volunteer hours than men. At home, women do 2/3 of the housework and spend double the time on family care compared to men. More than 60% of undergraduate degrees are awarded to women and approximately half of all graduate degrees are awarded to females. Women "do it all" except land the privileges and opportunities to lead.
Twelve Fortune 500 companies (2.4%) are led by women. Congress boasts a mere 16% of seats held by women. Three percent of clout positions in mainstream media are held by women. Thirteen percent of Sunday news show guests are women. Only 13.5% of universities are led by female presidents. Across the board, women earn less than men, costing women on average $1,000,000 over a lifetime.
