For every dollar a man makes, a woman makes 77 cents. Should the Wage Gap law be eradicated? If not, why should women remain to be inferior to men?

Women should remain inferior to men because any attempt at a Matriarchal society in the past (such as the Native Americans and certain African tribes) all got thrashed by Patriarchal societies.

Thus, it is evident throughout history that to be truly successful, a society must be fundamentally Patriarchal but not extremely so.

Actually, no. I am suggesting equal pay for equal work...

The 77 cent statistic is at best misleading, and at worst a lie. As @Instalgentoo pointed out, women do more part time and temporary work. In addition, a women takes off time for pregnancy and raising their children. The real statistic is around 93 cents. While still "unequal," the wage gap is not that large.

Still, Should a part timer really make less money doing the same job as a Full Timer?

The wage gap doesn't exist.

Women do more part-time and temporary work than men, that's why they seem to be paid less, but if you factor in the fact they are doing less work than men, there's no wage gap whatsoever.
