Many Moms Now Earning as Much as Dads

In 25% of all U.S. families, mom is bringing home as much bacon as dad. Also, many single moms are earning significantly more, according to a Pew Research Poll cited by NBCNews.

Overall, women — including those who are unmarried — are now the leading or solo breadwinners in 40 percent of U.S. households, compared with just 11 percent in 1960, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau analyzed by Pew.

 

This is in stark contrast to 50 years ago when only about 4% of women earned more than their husbands. Also a major difference between now and then is the number of unwed mothers. In 1960, only 5% of moms were single. Now that number is at about 41%.

Gender inequality has long been a story, and it is nice to see it starting to even out, even if it’s just a little bit.
