Women professors earn about 80 percent of what men professors earn, according to the American Association of University Professors. Although the laws enforce equal pay among women and men in the workplace, specific examples prove that equally qualified and experienced women earn less than their male counterparts.

Dr. Sharon Schwarze, a philosophy professor, and Dr. Jerry Zurek, the chairman of the English and communication department, were hired by Cabrini’s administration on the same day in 1971. Although both were equally qualified, Zurek was paid more than Schwarze.
