It’s not a secret that women are finally catching up to their male counterparts in the business world. Recently, stories about (and from) high-powered business women Sheryl Sandberg, Annemarie Slaughter, and Marissa Meyer have once again brought working women into the public eye, but are they really representing a national trend?

According to this infographic, it’s true: although women still aren’t earning as much money as men, we’re now more likely to graduate, more likely to become CEO of a publicly traded company, and apparently, we’re earning more money in some professions and even in some cities.

There’s no question that working women still have a long way to go, but it’s pretty inspiring to take a step back and look at where we are now.
