By Samuel Weigley and Alexander E. M. Hess

"The wage gap between men and women will not close for 45 years, according to new research from the Institute for Women's Policy Research.

The group found that the wage gap will close in 2057, a year later than previously projected, due to slow progress in recent years toward improving equality.

April 9 was Equal Pay Day, a holiday established in 1996 to highlight the earnings discrepancy between men and women in the United States. Across the country, women in full-time, year-round jobs make just 78.8% of what men in comparable positions make, equating to more than $10,000 less a year."
