Tax documents filed by the Clinton Foundation in 2013 list twenty executives, not including the three members of the Clinton family. These twenty executives include directors on the Board and officers of the various agencies operating under the umbrella of the Foundation. While 51% of the US population is female, per the 2010 US census, only 30% of the Foundation's executives are female.

Of the twenty executives, only eleven receive compensation for their work, and only three of this group are female, a mere 27% of compensated executives. Of the four positions designated as "officer," only one is held by a woman, and she receives the lowest compensation. All work 50 hours per week.

  • Bruce R. Lindsey, Chairman of the Board - $360,672
  • Eric Braverman, Chief Executive Officer - $261,041
  • Andrew Kessel, Chief Financial Officer - $174,571
  • Stephanie S. Streett, Executive Director - $138,750
Ms. Streett earns 21%, 47%, and 62% less than her three male colleagues.

The document lists four Chief Executive Officers, and only one is female. All work 50 hours per week. Again, she receives the lowest compensation.

  • Eric Braverman, CEO Clinton Foundation - $261,041
  • Mark Gunton, CEO Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership - $256,565
  • Robert S. Harrison, CEO Clinton Global Initiative - $208,138
  • Virginia Ehrlich, CEO Clinton Health Matters Initiative - $181,864
Ms. Ehrlich earns 13%, 31%, and 32% less than her three male colleagues.

Taking the average of these six percentages representing the occasions where a female employee of the Clinton Foundation was paid less than her male colleagues in comparable positions, the Clinton Foundation pays its female executives 34% less than its male executives. That's worse than the national average!

For Hillary Clinton, a candidate who claims to be a feminist, the fact that women are underrepresented among the Clinton Foundation's top executives speaks volumes, but the inexcusable and hypocritical pay gap tells the real story.
