Join the American Space Leipzig on Monday at 5pm for a public workshop on gender politics and the American workforce.

Women make up nearly half of the American workforce. They receive more degrees in higher education than men. Yet, women still earn considerably less than men. In 2015, female full-time workers made only 80 cents for every dollar earned by men, a gender wage gap of 20 percent.
