The best place for a woman to be in work is Cape Coral, Florida, where the pay gap with men is less than any other city in the United States.

In the Cape Coral-Fort Myers metropolitan area women earn 93.6% of what men do and female health technologists and technicians and those in business and financial services actually make more than men.

The median earnings for men in Cape Coral-Fort Myers is $37,402 while the median earnings for women is $35,023, according to the data from the news website 24/7 Wall Street.

The special report analysed salary data for women as a percentage of men’s earnings according to the US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey in the 100 biggest metropolitan areas in the United States.

“Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has recently made history as the first female nominated for president of the United States. Her nomination brought some long-standing issues of gender equality to the political foreground. While progress has been made over the years, there is still a real and significant gender pay gap in the American workplace. The typical female worker earns less than 80% of the earnings of the typical male worker,” says the website.

Education does not appear to have made a difference in the US gender pay gap. Women are more likely to have graduated from both high school and college, yet they have significantly less representation in the higher-paying industries for which a college education typically paves the way.
