Rhonda Sharpe: “I’m Every Woman”: Income Distribution by Race and Ethnicity – September 17, 2015

July 28, 2015 was Black Women’s Pay Equity day – the day that Black women’s earnings were equal to that of white men’s earnings in 2014. Much of the scholarly literature on pay inequality focuses on the
inequities between white men and others. This study analyzes the wage gap between Black women and other women, controlling for age cohort, education, geographic location, and marital status/family type. In this talk, I will describe the study and explore its implications for economic policy and future research.
