The hidden figures

Contained in pay gaps for college majors. Not the worst, but Math is right up there with an 18% pay gap between men and women. From MoneyWatch.

9 college majors with the biggest gender pay gap
2. Mathematics: -18 percent 
Women are underrepresented in college math programs, which counts as one of the majors with the highest pay after graduation. 
A degree in math doesn't mean a woman isn't getting shortchanged, however. Women earn just 82 cents for every $1 their male colleagues earn five years after graduation. On a dollar basis, that means women earn $49,182 annually compared with $60,000 for men.
