A new study ranks Indiana near the bottom  when it comes to gender pay equality. 

An American Association of University Women study finds Indiana women on average earn only about three-quarters of what their male counterparts do.

The study cites weak state laws as part of the reason Indiana ranks 40th out of the 50 states.

Indiana Institute for Working Families policy analyst Erin Macey says a Cornell University study showed women are often penalized just for being mothers.
