De­spite pop­u­lar be­lief, women do ask for in­creases as much as men – they just don’t get them as of­ten! Ac­cord­ing to a study by Har­vard Busi­ness Re­view, men re­ceive in­creases 5% more of­ten than women. 15%: the amount women re­ceive an in­crease af­ter ask­ing. 20%: the amount men re­ceive an in­crease af­ter ask­ing. This small dif­fer­ence adds up over the years and con­trib­utes to the wage gap.
