Former bank executive: Women, ask for a raise!
NPR
It's not an exaggeration to say most of America's financial sector is run by men. In the securities and investment banking industries, men hold more than 80 percent of executive positions. And women hold only 17 percent of the board seats on Fortune 500 companies. Sallie Krawcheck bucked the odds.

Millennial women don't believe the gender pay gap applies to them. Wrong.
Forbes
Facts are facts: a woman who leaves business school today already experiences a 7 percent wage gap upon graduation. And that gap only widens over time as the likelihood of asking for a raise decreases as she progresses over the course of her career. A woman who doesn't negotiate her salary in her first job will lose an average of $431,000 by the time she's 65. Why does this wage gap exist? What is the exact right number to be talking about? Is it structural, or are women to blame for not exercising the right behaviors?
