According to the World Economic Forum’s 2018 report, “the global pay gap between men and women will take 202 years to close because it is so vast and the pace of change is so slow.” 

This discussion will examine current global gender pay gap trends, pay disparity within occupations, how the gender pay gap impacts women, their families, and the communities in which they live, public policy strategies for narrowing the gender wage gap, the effects of misogyny and patriarchy, why protracted predictions are unacceptable and why we must disrupt this timeline now.
