President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Law in 1963, but the gender wage gap still persists almost 60 years later, and some estimates suggest it will take another 40 years to close the gap.

However, some cities are doing a better job than others at closing the gap. The folks at Pew Research Center recently released a gender wage gap calculator where you can enter your age range and city to find out how large the gender wage gap is where you live.

On average, in 2019, women earned 82% of what men earned. But the picture is less stark in Napa, California, where women earn 98% of what men make, and in both Naples, Florida, and Dover, Delaware, where women earn 95%.

A recent analysis from Pew also showed that younger women were out-earning younger men on average in a number of cities, including major markets like San Diego and Sacramento.
