The U.S. Treasury has called on Americans to submit their “ideas, symbols, designs, or any other feedback that can inform the secretary as he considers options for the $10 redesign.” So we figured we’d help Secretary Lew reimagine the $10 bill by illustrating just how real the gender pay gap is.
Our research shows that even when you account for all the factors known to affect pay, women are already paid 7 percent less than men just one year after college — and the gap only grows from there. At this rate, the pay gap will not close for another 124 years.
Putting a woman on the $10 bill is supposed to symbolize the gains women have made. And while symbolism is important, we simply can’t let it stop there.
