Why Is There a Gender Pay Gap?
"But this calculation is not just simplistic and misleading in its approach: It also masks the real cause of the pay disparity.
Believers in the gender wage gap often voice the common argument that women are punished for giving birth and discriminated against in the workforce because of the belief they are more interested in the mommy track than the career track. But if we look closer at the numbers, it turns out that's just not true. The pay disparity is mostly about college major and career choice, not family size."
