gender paygap

And what if a woman's nature tends toward wanting to shoulder less financial responsibility?
At a moment in history when the American conversation seems to be obsessed with bringing attention to women in the workplace (check out “The End of Men,” or Google “gender paygap” for a primer), it seems a remarkable chasm between what we’d like to see (more women in the corporate ranks) and what we’d like for ourselves (getting out of Dodge). But it’s true: according to our survey, 84% of working women told ForbesWoman and TheBump that staying home to raise children is a financial luxury they aspire to.
What’s more, more than one in three resent their partner for not earning enough to make that dream a reality

On a somewhat related note, interesting post on protesters trying to keep people from listening to Warren Farrell in Toronto.  Perhaps, since they are Canadians, we can't expect them to believe in a right to free speech.
