Of the top 30 Washington lobby groups, just four have female CEOs. And those women – Pamela Bailey, Karen Ignagni, Susan Neely and Denise Bode – make on average just 57 percent of what their 26 male counterparts make, new research reveals.
This pay discrepancy is amazingly worse than female CEOs of corporations, who make on average 80 cents for each dollar their male counterparts make. The general public fares worse than this, but better than the women CEOs of lobbyist groups, earning just 72 cents for every dollar a man in the same position makes.
Bloomberg illustrated the pay gap in a handy chart.
