[Extract] While looking at the issue of gender pay equity for work purposes I thought it seemed unnecessarily complex. I asked the eldest of my three daughters what she knew, and she answered that she understood women were paid less than men, but that she couldn’t readily explain why. This is not surprising as the variables making up the difference are yet to be fully explained. I looked at various academic papers but the competing arguments, language, and nuances left me feeling quite confused. The Canadian, Jordan Petersen, makes sense when he says that the causes of pay inequity are multivariate and situational.
