There have been many proposed solutions to the educational, maternal and social influences affecting women’s wages, however, implementation of these policies has not corrected the wage gap as predicted. In fact, further education has been shown to negatively impact the wage gap as women who have graduated college, on average, make 75.2 cents on the dollar compared to their male counterparts. This value is argued to be secondary to the majors that are predominantly by females such as the humanitaires or education as these majors, when compared to the STEM (science, technologies, engineering and mathematics) majors pay less on average. Movements have been implemented to increase the female presence in these majors, however, data also supports that females within even these majors are also subject to inequality that accounts for up to 68% of the occupational wage gap. Despite the persistent issues, education can partially reduce the disparity between men and women, however, there are secondary post graduate circumstances that further inhibit equal treatment.
