    But to say that women don't do the same work is utter bull****. I've worked in male dominated fields most of my life and I did the same goddamn work the guys did.
    Yea I know we all have our little stories about how that isn't true from our niche in life but on average men work more hours then women.

    Here is another that cites a lot of reasons why women earn less.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Many of you have exaggerated the claims of the position of women, often neglecting to mention, that men were in an equal or worse position in society.

    You are all playing guilt by association.
    Assuming that because it was accepted that men could beat their wife's, that it was very common.
    You have no data to prove this.

    I'm not buying the victim mentality.
    I'm not going tow the line, that women in the first world have it so bad.
    It's complete nonsense.

    Read the information I posted.
    Then do some research on how women, generally, choose lower paying fields and are also more likely to work part time.

    Please show me how I am being sexist.

    Not talking about averages. Talking about individuals in the same positions because that's the only comparisons that matter.

    It's hard to draw conclusions about male/female equality when you look at data sets which are too wide. More women than men stay home and do child-rearing duties, which skews the data on hours worked and female earning progress.

    For women who work in the same fields as men, with similar educations, women often earn more than men, particularly in large urban areas. I'd say that pay parity has almost been achieved, and that the disparity exists primarily as a result of individual choices (i.e., opting out of career for the "mommy track.")

    Re: The End of Men

    Men versus Women in the post industrial era:



    Picture is worth a thousand words, and all.

    http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/20...r-parents-did/

    As you can see, most men today earn less than equally educated men in 1979, with the exception of the most highly educated. The opposite is true for women: Most women today earn more than their equally educated counterparts from 1979, with the exception of the least educated.
