I think that the gender wage gap is a myth because the gender wage gap that we comprehend is a false version of the gender wage gap in reality. The wage gap is just a study for how much women and men make on average. It does not account for hours worked (if they even earn money by the hour at all) job occupation, education, etc. The wage gap is the result of men and women's individual choices, not sexism. The wage gap isn't because of women earning less than men in the same job occupation, rather, it is because women choose slightly different (and somewhat minor) jobs than men. Actually, if women are earning less than men in a job occupation, you should sue the company they work for, because that's illegal.

The gender wage gap does exist, however, there isn't an earning gap. The gender wage gap states that women are paid less than men, but women typically choose less profitable careers than men, they don't ask for raises often either. Essentially the data is comparing neurosurgeons to cashiers. Women don't typically get paid as much as men, but it's because they're not earning as much.
