At one glance: poverty and the pay gap

LearnStuff.com, a site full of bite-size interesting facts, boasts an "infographics" section that presents statistics in appealing, colourful images. I particularly recommend the one called Equal Education Unequal Pay (click on the title to see the full graphic), which shows the massive pay gap between women and men in the USA - and the consequences. The picture above is an extract of the long and tall graphic - it shows that raising women's average pay to men's level could dramatically reduce poverty in the USA. And it is about time to get there, because more women than men in the USA have a college (university) education!
Now, if you have spent a long day at the computer, also check out the Take a Break graphic.
