ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)- While women make up more than half of the population, they still lag far behind their male counterparts when it comes to salary. According to the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, Missouri women earn 79 cents on the dollar compared to similarly-employed men. If current trends continue the gap will not close for 50 years.

Best-selling author Susan Solovic will be the keynote speaker at the upcoming Stronger Women For A Better Community event Thursday night.
