During his 2014 State of the Union address, President Obama announced, “When women succeed, America succeeds.” Women today outnumber men on college campuses and in advanced-degree programs; yet the gender pay gap persists, with a woman needing an associate’s degree just to earn what a man with a high school diploma makes. What would it take to bridge the pay gap for women earning degrees at unprecedented rates? What is the role of men in this conversation, and what do low-income women need in order to join their sisters at the top?
