Temperature fluctuations are linked to a lower male-to-female sex ratio at birth. So climate change might be another factor too lol
wouldnt all of those fall under social, economic, personality and/or gender related issues?
i was just criticizing the topic title, not stating an opinion on it.
i agree the gender wage gap likely has an innocent explanation for most, if not all of the gap... but i do like all of the ideas proposed to address the gap. they arent demanding instant raises, just the ability to disclose your salary without consequences. i think it would be great, and motivational to have open salaries so people see the correlation between hard work and compensation.
The fact that men are typically more assertive and ask for raise more often and negotiate more. Also the fact that men typically chose higher paying career paths while women typically chose lower paying ones. There are others but I think those are the biggest ones.
what other factors were being considered?
