there is limited access to male-dominated professional networks, and the persistence of gender stereotypes tend to decrease their clout at work, according to Pew. A 2013 study by Pew found that four in ten mothers took a significant amount of time off or reduced their work hours to care for a child or other family member. And 27 percent said they quit work altogether for their familial responsibilities. That’s almost double the number of men who said the same. The gains women have made were driven by them showing up and staying in the workplace. But for the second year in a row, men continue to make 17 cents more than women for the same work. This means that it would take “an extra 44 days of work for women to earn what men” earn, according to Pew . But not everyone sees this as a problem. Just six in ten women say the country “hasn’t gone far enough when it comes to gender equality.” And those views are wildly partisan: Democrats are more likely to say that the country does not give women equal rights, whereas Republicans think otherwise. Also, women are more likely to point out the same, as opposed to men. If we continue at this rate, it could take over 100 years to reach gender pay parity.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
