The status of Black women in America

For the first time, a Black and South Asian woman is serving as Vice President of the United States. While marking a major milestone in American history worthy of honor and acknowledgment, Black History Month 2021 presents an ideal opportunity to acknowledge the legions of Black women - past and present - who have yet to receive their due for their longstanding contributions to the American workforce. The sobering reality is that in 2021, Black women in the United States who work full time, year-round are typically paid just 62 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. Some research suggests that Black women lose an estimated $946,000 in earnings over the course of a 40-year career compared to their white male counterparts; especially concerning in light of the fact that more than 80 percent of Black women are the breadwinners of their households. This pay gap persists regardless of education, location, and age, and in both low- and high-paying positions.
