"Ladies, today we celebrate a great milestone. As of April 12, 2011, we have officially caught up to what our male counterparts earned in 2010. It only took us an extra 102 days! Personally I’m feeling as empowered as a vintage Virginia Slims ad, but a lot of people are asking why, in the year 2011, such a large wage gap—77 cents for women compared to each $1 earned by men—still exists. Well, I’m here to tell you it’s definitely not about sexism! Women of America, you’re doing the same work but making less than your male counterparts because you just don’t have their workplace savvy. Luckily there’s a lot of research out there about what women can do to improve their standing in the professional world, and I’ve compiled a handy guide for you. Whether you’re just starting your career or already pressed firmly against that glass ceiling, there’s something here for everyone."
