In our world, discrimination against women is made worse by the fact that men tend to overestimate their value, asking for big raises while their female colleagues remain silent. Unequal pay thus becomes even more unequal, and women's financial independence more limited than men's. While the lion's share of responsibility for equal pay lies with employers, women can significantly advance their own interests by learning to advocate for their own raises and to invest their income wisely.

Subscribe to Big Think Edge and you'll learn from Sallie Krawcheck, tireless advocate for women's equality in the workplace, which salary websites you should keep an eye on to know if you're being compensated fairly. She'll also explain why a salary gap between men and women is not "merely" an issue about the principle of equality. It affects how and when women retire, whether the money they depend on later in life will truly be theirs, and what their investment strategies will be like during high-earning years.
