Four American cities are bucking the notion that men earn bigger salaries than women.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the median income for women exceeds that of men in the Florida cities of Key West and Sebring, as well as Madera, Calif., and Fort Payne, Ala.
In Key West, women on average earn $33,956 while men earn $31,716, the Miami Herald
reports. In Sebring, women also out-earn men — $28,677 compared to $27,094.
Overall, the census found the best-paying city for women is Washington, D.C., where women working full-time earn a median income of $57,128, according to Forbes.
That’s about three times the pay in the worst-paying city for women — Opelousas, La. —where they earn just $21,658 a year, Forbes reports.
The second best-paying city for women is San Jose, Calif., where they earn a median salary of $56,499.
