ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Women are paid less than men for doing the exact same job, but are paying more for everything from clothing to healthcare.  

According to a new report from the National Women’s Law Center, a woman starting her career stands to lose more than $430,000 over her working years due to the gender wage gap.

At the same time women are getting paid less, they are also paying more for the same products and services as men.

A report from the New York Department of Consumer Affairs in December found that women pay about 7 percent more for products marketed towards them, such as pink razors or bikes.
