So what if the women earned less than the men?
By 1987, women were earning 75 percent of what men did.
The situation changes on the professional level, where women earn more than men.
Over that period, women on average earned only 38 percent of what men did.
The men picked up 338 points, and the women earned 310 total.
As in many countries, both men and women earn the most if they have a university degree.
In that year, women earned 62.5 percent of what men made.
A few women are earning more than $500,000, he said.
In Europe, women still earn on average 18% less than men.
"Why would you not let us know that women, too, can earn money even after their children are born?"
