2013 Women in Business and the Gender Gap Statistics

A new year has begun, so let’s take some time to review what happened for women in business and the gender pay gap during 2013.

As I did in 2012, I went through the research-related articles published on Women on Business during 2013, and selected a collection of articles that provide a great overview of how the business world looked for women throughout the year. Follow the preceding link to see the 2012 stats, and check out the articles below for all of the 2013 stats.

  1. No Progress for Women in Business Says 2013 Census of Fortune 500
  2. The Rise of Women as Primary Breadwinners [Infographic]
  3. How the Lack of Diversity in Leadership is Hurting Companies
  4. Just 4 out of 10 Male Senior Executives Believe More Women are Needed in Senior Positions
  5. 2013 Women on Boards Survey Finds the Gender Gap Closed 1.7% Since 2009
  6. Mothers are Now Primary Breadwinners in 4 out of 10 U.S. Households
