Another Piece to the Pay Puzzle
The gender gap is overall average earnings that favors men is a frustrating issue. I see no connection between this and the boys/academic I issue I follow. But feminist groups see it differently, so the issue has to be addressed. The most outspoken of these groups see discrimination as the root cause of the earnings gap; economists tend to see personal choices as the cause. From my perspective, it all starts in college when men and women choose very different course of studies.
