This article is more than 13 years old.

Evelyn Murphy made history in Massachusetts when, in 1986, she became the first woman to be elected lieutenant governor. As a Democrat in the Dukakis administration, she served in that office through 1990.

Since then the former corporate executive and trained economist has spent much of her time researching the wage gap between men and women. She details her findings in her new book, "Getting Even: Why Women Don't Get Paid Like Men, And What To Do About It."
