Women by an overwhelming majority still believe they're being discriminated against in the workplace, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll that found little difference now in feelings about work bias than a similar poll taken in 1997.

According to the latest survey of 1,000 voters conducted April 5-8, 84 percent of women respondents said they still believe men are paid more money for similar work. More than 40 percent also said they have faced gender discrimination personally.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women who work full-time still earn only 79 percent of the weekly pay men bring home. In addition, the Institute for Women's Policy Research reports women's median earnings lag men's in almost every occupation.

However, women's attitudes are changing about a work-life balance. In 1997, 78 percent of women said they could not “have it all” without making sacrifices at work and home. Today, 66 percent of women believe they need to make compromises.
