notes on government, sports and popular culture
on the salary gap between men and women:
"But if the salary gap is to close at last, the persistence of gender stereotypes alos must be recognized — and challenged— by men as well as women."
I can't say I've ever been a champion of women's rights, simply because I believe women don't need my help to make it in this world. It's obvious — every day I see women who make more money than I do and hold more high-powered positions.
Besides, is it not a form of chauvinism to assume that the only way women are going to make more money is if men recognize the disparity?
