New data released by the U.S. Census Bureau shows that, between 2018 and 2019, no progress was made on closing the overall wage gender gap, with the average full-time working woman still earning just $0.82 for every dollar earned by men. 

When broken down racially, White women’s pay gap remained unchanged at $0.79 for every dollar earned by White men, while Asian women’s pay gap widened from $0.90 to $0.87, according to an analysis from the National Women’s Law Center. Native American women and Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander women saw their pay gaps close slightly from $0.57 and $0.61 in 2018, to $0.60 and $0.63, respectively, in 2019.

For Black women and Latinas, NWLC reports that the pay gap closed by just one penny, moving from $0.62 and $0.54 in 2018 to $0.63 and $0.55, respectively, in 2019.
