This paper first hypothesizes that although women in the highest educational categories do suffer from the largest wage gap, that gap is steadily decreasing along with average monetary earnings increasing. The paper relates that it was found through regression analysis that the average monetary income of women with a college education is increasing. However, the paper also reveals that findings showed that the decreasing gap is not at the speed previously thought, and actually is in fact declining at a lower rate than women without college educations. The paper notes another disturbing finding from this study; the continuous decline in average monetary wages of those women without college educations.
