Young Women Are More Educated Than Men But They Earn Less
By: Emily Deruy
Young women are more likely than their male counterparts to hold a college diploma, yet they are still more likely to live in poverty, according to a new report from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research.
While 36 percent of millennial women have at least a bachelor’s degree, just 28 percent of millennial men can say the same. Yet young women earn less in every state except one and have higher rates of poverty in every single state in the nation.
