>>98930503>she thinks shit like the wage gap is real.
wage gap is a misnomer. it used to be like this, but as similar trend keep going on, the name stick to it, even if the describing isn't perfectly apt.
It would be more accurate to talk about "opportunity gap", as nowadays, what it refer to is the fact that the highest paid job tend to be mostly occupied by men. That result in an average of female workers as a whole getting paid less than the whole of male workers, thus "wage gap" being applied to that difference, but most people get it as "same job, different pay" which is not what it is.
Why better paid job are mostly occupied by men is heatly debated, but why I can understand people who are against quotas, I wouldn't consider scrapping off the issue as "normal" either. I do consider that at the education level something can be done to encourage more kids to seek domain they wouldn't think of.
Making programming part of the mandatory teaching program would be part of the solution. Many girl don't even consider programming and thus never try it and might discover they might actually enjoy it. fuck it might also apply to boy who didn't knew they had that in them. everyone win.
