56% of girls said that it is true that “girls are expected to speak softly and not cause trouble.” (Girls Incorporated, Taking the Lead: Girls’ Rights in the 21st Century, 2000)

One in three (34 percent) full-time women workers earn less than $20,000 a year, compared with only one in five (19 percent) men. (U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census, Current Population Reports, P60-201, Money Income in the United States, 1998)
