great! can everyone just shut-up about it then already?!
here’s from another (apparently) sane, rational woman out there (there are a few of us — a very few, I know — but there are a few):
“A study of single, childless urban workers between the ages of 22 and 30 found that women earned 8% more than men….
“Choice of occupation also plays an important role in earnings. While feminists suggest that women are coerced into lower-paying job sectors, most women know that something else is often at work. Women gravitate toward jobs with fewer risks, more comfortable conditions, regular hours, more personal fulfillment and greater flexibility. Simply put, many women — not all, but enough to have a big impact on the statistics—are willing to trade higher pay for other desirable job characteristics.”
yes! women chooooose jobs that they want to do! whew! is that really so hard to understand?
p.s. – actually, according to that one study, there IS a male-female wage gap amongst single, urban, childless workers between the ages of 22-30 — and it’s in the women’s favor!
