This past Tuesday was Equal Pay Day, which represents how far into the year women have to work to earn the equivalent of men's wages from the previous year - nearly three and a half extra months.

While women still lag behind men in most jobs, there are a few where they come out ahead, according to recent data released by the US Census Bureau, which compares men and women's annual full-time wages across 342 professions.

However, these findings may not be something to celebrate, says Payscale data scientist Katie Bardaro: "In a lot of ways it paints a more negative picture for women, because even in these jobs where women are paid more, the difference is so small."
