Younger Women, Smaller Pay Gap

This piece in The New York Times shows much smaller wage gaps among younger women. A result of women becoming better educated and choosing more aggressive career paths or women gaining added legal protections against discrimination? My assumption is that the former explains most of it.

This is relevant to the boy troubles because the national feminist groups resist school interventions aimed at boys by arguing that women still face pay discrimination. I realize there's no logical connection there; the issues are entirely separate. But in the real world of policy, that "logic" is a player.
