Women Unequal in Media Jobs Stats:
- Only one in four communications/media jobs created between 1990 and 2005 were filled by women. The only area where the share of women increased was in the newspaper industry — the lowest-paid industry in the sector, where many of the women are employed in part-time telephone sales positions.
- For full-time workers in the communications/media sector, a gender and race wage gap persists: White men are paid 29 percent more than white women and 46 percent more than women of color.
- Among communications companies in the Fortune 500, women comprise just 15 percent of top executives and only 12 percent of board members.
