Why Do Women Make Less Than Men? From Gloria Steinem (VIDEO)

Women earn less money than men do for performing the same job. Feminist Gloria Steinem stopped by Mondays With Marlo to discuss why this is still happening. Part of it is that someone is making a profit from paying women less -- it's one of the reasons we need to fight against unequal pay.

Another reason is that women are often timid about asking for what we deserve. Do your research and find out what your male counterparts are earning for the same line of work -- and then demand equal compensation!
