The song may be titled “Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves,” but women have always been helping drive advancements in fields like science and technology, health, education, and politics to benefit the whole of society. All despite a gender wage gap that, in the United States, still has women earning just 82 cents for every dollar a man earns.
