Also: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/4753360.stm Just to make sure, because I am a bit confused here, they are saying that women don't get the same qualifications that men do, thus get paid less, not that a woman working in the same company will get less money than the man because she is a woman. If that is the case, what is the big deal? Surely if a person, be that a man or a woman wants to do something, it's upto them to get the qualifications to do it. So what's the big deal? It's like saying that builders don't make as much as CEOs of multinational corporations, of course they don't, but it still doesn't make headlines.
