(WTVR) –

Women are still falling behind their male counterparts on the pay scale.

A new report by the American Association of University Women reveals women earned 77 percent of what men earned in 2010, but it does not specify whether comparisons are done on the same job position.

The annual median pay for women was just under forty thousand dollars, while men were earning about forty thousand five hundred dollars.

The gap grew even greater for hispanic women.
