• You can't argue this because it is simply a fact!

    However, it is not THAT large, thankfully, in the Western world. But difference in salary and sexism is still very real. But then again, the only way to end sexism as a whole is to never discriminate male vs. Female in the first place. "What is my baby?" "A human-being!" "What's its gender?" "SEXIST!!!"

    Anyway, AlRae2107's argument is a flop simply because of the tumblr link. Why would you cite TUMBLR for something like this...? Also, Bluepaintcan123, the person against this, seems to not bring up anything on the ACTUAL STATISTICS OF PAY BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN. All I see is that men and women have an opportunity to get any jobs they want, however he fails to recognize that there is a pay gap between genders in almost every job field.

    Here's sources to such statistics:

    Though both links are pro-feminist, so why not check out even wikipedia?:


  • There is definitely a gender pay gap when looking at men and women with similar careers/education levels.

    Please check out this blog for more information about the subject:

    Segregation of occupations, duties for mothers (leads to career interruptions), career choices (main argument by many that women choose lower paying jobs), discrimination in the workplace, silencing the discussion of earnings by workers, discrimination for women of color and minorities...Etc.

  • Gender pay gap

    Yes is the gender pay gap exists. The gender pay gap is different pay between men and women. I think that for example women's salary is less high than men, The promotion for women are less frequant than for men. The gender pay gap is discrimination. The situation of women is unfair.

  • Yes and No

    For me, There is a gender pay gap in society. Sur, The average gender overall earnings gap in the EU is 39, 6%. More, Women are victims of lower hourly earnings. However do not generalize. Companies don’t make a difference between men and women. These companies respect equality and decrease the gender pay gap in society.

  • The Gender Pay Gap

    The Gender Pay Gap is the difference between the salary of men’s and women’s.
    There are very sexist and diserimination for the women because are different salary for even job.
    There are statistics that prove that there is an injustice between men and women, It is also seen at work in the attitude of men towards women

  • Yes there is

    The gender pay gap exist in a lot of companies, Is not good for the society. There is a discrimination between man and woman. For exemple men’s have more important position than women. The salary of men is the highest but the work of women it s same of women.

  • It’s yes!

    Yes, Because on the society they are inequality between m’en and women there is a sexism. For me is very bad for a business because there is a descrimination gendre and it’s not good for the populary of the company. To depend of job. Sad reality of society d.

  • The gap present

    The page gap is present There are statistics that prove that there is an injustice between men and women, It is also seen at work in the attitude of men towards women. I find it unnatural that there is still this kind of injustice. More man the boss compared.

  • Women earn less than men based upon their own choices. Women might earnless than men.

    Men and women doesn’t earn the same salary then theyvdo the same job. Women do the same job than men then they do the same job at the same time, And women are totaly in the gender pay gap and it’s really chame in 2019 because we do the same job.

  • The gender pay gap is a true reality

    Yes, I think the gender pay gap exist in many different countries between men and woman. Well, A man and a woman who work for the same job are not paid the same wage. Woman are less payed than men. Woman are payed about 80%. There is inequality and discrimination to women because they do the same work for am different wage.

  • No there is not

    Women choose different jobs than men. Women get different degrees than men. Women work less hours than men. Women take more vacations than men. Woman earn less. Women are not payed less than men for the same work. That's a feminist myth. Again. Women earn less than men because we have different jobs and work different hours.

  • Women generally take lower paying jobs.

    There is no law in America that says women are to be paid less. The reason why women generally make less is because they generally take lower paying jobs than men. If the wage gap did exist more companies will hire women because they can pay them less, but this isn't the case.

  • The only reason there would be a difference in pay is the personal decisions of the individual people.

    Here is a summary of what I am trying to say. You should check it out:
    There is nothing preventing a women from taking the same jobs as men, or getting the same degrees, or being more assertive in the workplace, or working longer hours, or getting a better relationship with people in your job (networking and all that), etc.
    You can't just take the average wage of ALL men and women then say its proof. BS. People are paid differently in different jobs, and most men typically take higher paying jobs (not sexism, especially since women are CHOOSING not to take those jobs.)
    Most men work longer hours and overtime, while most women can't because there are a lot of single moms out there. Not sexism, but personal choices.
    Also not all bosses are the stereotypical fat white capitalist that just laughs off women, it is totally ignorant to think that. Most bosses care about those who are the most capable and valuable. If there is a qualified woman which will be a huge benefit to the company, do you honestly think that they would pay her 60 cents on the dollar? She would just quit and they would loose money! Most people wouldn't risk that.
    (Also there are equal pay laws that are ALREADY passed in America, just Google it.)
    Women need jobs that will work with their schedule, and many high paying jobs demand things that most women (specifically mothers) cannot provide.
    Sexism is almost nonexistent in the Western world, but people act as if it is a rampant problem.

  • On Average, Women choose different jobs to men

    The gender pay gap does not exist because of the fact that women choose lower paying jobs like teachers and nurses. There is no evidence that supports the difference in the pay gap. Women are also more likely to have babies and be a stay at home parent. On average men work more hours because of women having to attend their children.

  • Yes and no

    The Yes: Women do get payed less then men
    The No: It's not due to gender
    The idea of a wage gap is illogical when you look at it economically. If women were payed less, wouldn't companies fire all men? Or is it because women choose less paying jobs?
    This video explains why there is no wage gap

  • Normalise for same job, same company, same level, and there is no gap

    I fully agree and accept, because it is clear from the data that Women as a demographic "earn" less than men. What I deny is that they "earn" less due to some entrenched sexual discrimination were women are "paid" unequally for equal work compared to their male counterparts.

    Simply put women earn less as a result of social and cultural issues, that drive choices women make. Society pressures women to take time off to raise a family, whilst men stay in workforce. Also cultural stereotypes can affect how young women make decisions over University degrees, and career choices, which effect their future earning potential, and not being able to access the highest-paying jobs, functions, and industries

  • No. It does not.

    I know countless females who get paid more then men for similar jobs because they simply work more hours or have a higher status (having been there longest and what not). In general though, most women don't CHOOSE to work full time or they choose different kinds of jobs. When it comes to the same job and same exact hours I guarantee the man and woman would be paid the same, but guess what. It's rare that two people will make the exact same choices daily like that. It's honestly not that hard to understand. If you truly want to change the difference we should encourage girls to strive for math and science so they can get the hire paying jobs, because guess what...Women have the freedom TODAY to get those jobs. They just choose not to. Personally I will choose to have a family and WANT to be with my kids ore then at work, so I can focus on them. Due to that, yes, I will get paid less then my husband..Obviously.

  • The Wage gap doesn't and can't exist.

    The statistics for the wage gap is taken from all jobs not the same job with the same work. Women generally take more time off then men and also choose lower paying jobs. Also if this was real do you really think the government would allow it to happen. If it was real businesses would only hire women, if the only had to pay the 78 % of what they pay men then why would they need men they could get more profit with women workers. The wage gap is a tired argument to brainwash the sheeple watching the left wing news. You cant claim that sexism is systematic its not its personal some people are gonna be sexist protesting saying #freethenipple isnt going to change anything it may even make things worse because you look imature.

  • Women earn less than men based upon their own choices. Women might earn less than men, but each side is payed the same.

    Women earn less than men based upon what jobs they have, how much overtime they do, how much time they take off, and what degrees they have. Example: There are more women teachers than men, while there are more men engineers than women. Women earn less money than men, but no discrimination is involved.

  • It's down to how we promote certain jobs to boys and girls

    There is no pay gap between Gender. At least within the UK (my perspective). Women within the same role as their male counterparts, working the same hours per week typically earn more in the 20-40 age bracket. It becomes convoluted beyond that due to disparity in positions between the genders. The reason the gap is said to exist is usually because the average pay of women across all sectors is compared to the average pay of men across all sectors; this does not consider differences in jobs occupied nor does it consider differences in hours worked. In order to remedy this illustration of the pay gap, one would need to be advocating paying women far more than their male counterparts when working in typically low-paid professions (such as childcare or social care) in order to levy up the figures- this is clearly discriminatory. The problem is too many women occupy these positions compared to men, and these positions are low paid. Solutions therefore rest within how we educate boys and girls as to what is "suitable" for them to do, and also about the low rates of pay within these sectors in general. Also how much maternity/paternity leave we grant (in the UK a woman can take 9 months paid leave, a man can take two weeks so that creates over 8 months of surplus wage for the man against the woman by default, even if he takes full paternity leave). Certainly within the UK it's illegal to pay someone less money than another person in the same position on the basis of their gender. We need to look at the positions occupied primarily. Looking at gender and pay in a simplified way only creates knee-jerk responses which provide no long-term solutions. For example giving all of your women within the office a payrise because proportionally the women within the office earn less than the men may resolve the issue for them, but what about the women who come after them? And can you justify the questions of any male colleague who asks why his female friend suddenly takes home more money than him despite working the same position? Can you really argue that it's justified because your board of executives is largely male, so you need to push the figures up on the lower rungs of the ladder?
