This video provides information that can stimulate discussion on inequalities of pay between the genders. This video references to findings that women are out earning men, but also alludes to a history of inequality of payment, the existence of “male” and “female” professions, and possible misinterpretations of statistics. Since this finding is reported as a change, this video allows a great opportunity to look at the historical progression of inequalities of pay between the genders, perhaps starting with the Equal Pay Act.
