States with the Highest Gender Pay Gaps in America—And the Lowest

All is (not) fair in wages and salary, depending on where you live. Here are the states with the highest and lowest gender pay gap, according to a recent Zippia study.

Highest gender pay gap: Alabama

Alabama's gender pay gap, which is the difference between how much men and women make, is 25.4 percent, according to the Zippia study. That could be attributed to the fact that the southern state is one of only two states (along with Mississippi) that haven't passed any of the gender equality laws recommended by the American Association of University Women. If you're a working woman looking for a raise, here's how to ask for one the right way.

Highest gender pay gap: Idaho

While the current gender pay gap in Idaho (25.5 percent) has been decreasing since 2010, it's still higher than the national average of 21 percent. Chris Kolmar of Zippia explains that even "when you control for the same job at the same level at the same company, there really shouldn't be any gap at that level of comparison, so that's all gender bias playing a role."

Highest gender pay gap: Oklahoma

In 2017, the median salary for a full-time working man in Oklahoma was $46,114, compared to $35,488 for full-time working women. And two years later, the state's gender pay gap is now up to 25.5 percent and unfortunately is even larger for women of color.
