A new Pew Research Center study finds that "in spite of the dramatic gains women have made in educational attainment and labor force participation in recent decades, young women view this as a man's world." Except for many of them, it's not.
After surveying thousands of adults and looping in labor market and education data, Pew found that 51% of millennial women and 55% of female boomers believe that it's easier to be a man than a woman. For boomers that's certainly true, but many young women seem to have come to that feeling via projection, assuming a future for themselves that has yet to happen. In 2012, hourly wages for millennial women were 93% of what their male peers made. Women of all ages made 84% of what men made.
