The American workplace is subjected to gender inequality in many ways, and one of the most noticeable ways is the gender wage gap. The goal of this paper is to bring attention to the impact of the wage gap and how it undermines women and their contributions to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). This will be done by referring to the most recent sources about the salaries, available work resources, and opportunities for higher positions between men and women in the STEM field. We will also take a look at factors that contribute to this gap, such as segregation and discrimination. By exploring the wage gap, we can learn to face these factors head on and will possibly give ideas and innovative ways of narrowing it and hopefully one day ending it.
