In this quote, Hillary Clinton appears to be highlighting the gender pay gap issue and advocating for policies to reduce unequal treatment. She cites data showing that on average, women currently earn only $0.79 for every $1 earned by men, indicating a roughly 20% lower average salary simply due to their gender.

Clinton also notes the pay gap has an even greater impact on women of color. Her statement “Let’s close that gap” conveys a desire to reform the system and enact measures that would diminish this wage inequality over time.

Overall, Clinton seems to be calling attention to ongoing disparities in how much women, especially minority women, are paid compared to men in similar roles, and expressing a goal of enacting fairer compensation policies that would narrow or eliminate this gap.
