The gender gap persists

The gender gap persists: "News & Record
A story in Sunday's News & Record comparing the salaries of female leaders of Triad nonprofit organizations with their male counterparts confirmed what is common knowledge for women in the workplace overall. On the whole, salaries of female nonprofit executives are lower than those of their male peers -- an average of 40 percent lower, according to the story reported by Margaret Moffett Banks.
Marci Brown, executive director of the Tarheel Triad Council of Girl Scouts of America, told Banks that salary rarely comes up in discussion when she and female colleagues gather at national meetings. There's no need for it to, she said, noting 'any professional woman, for-profit or nonprofit, is aware that there is a discrepancy between men and women's salaries.'"
