Congressional districts in the Chicago area are among the worst for pay disparity between women and men.

According to the National Partnership for Women and Families, Illinois' 13th District in the southwest suburbs and the 1st District in northwest Indiana are in the top 10.

Women in the Illinois district made just 67 percent of what men make. That's nearly $23,000 less.

In the Indiana district, women make $17,000 less than men.
