Women of Color

From the Christian Science Monitor:

Still facing the prospect of double bias in the workplace - because of race and gender - women of color working full time often struggle to advance. They usually make less than their white counterparts. For them, the "glass ceiling" sometimes looks more like steel. Simply avoiding being stereotyped, even by other women, can be hard.

I am generally very suspicious of wage comparisons by gender, and the lack of data in this article leaves a lot to be desired. When you throw in race and ethnicity, the picture only becomes more muddled.
