The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap - and What Women Can Do About It
If men really are paid more than women for the same amount of work, why
would anyone hire a man? Warren Farrell asked himself that question,
wondering whether the assumption of unequal pay is really true.
Following years of research, he now presents his surprising and
controversial answer, arguing that women almost always have exactly the
same opportunities as men, but make choices that keep them from earning
more. Why Men Earn More fearlessly debunks traditional assumptions, and
presents 25 of these key workplace choices, including the decision to
take more hazardous jobs, enter technical fields, work longer hours,
and many more. Investigating the implications and trade-offs people
make, Why Men Earn More forces readers to rethink their strategies, and
shows how they can take control of their wage-earning potential.
“Filled with fascinating data and unique ideas, Why Men Earn More is
written with an unflinching honesty that reflects a deep respect for women. It is a book every woman must read who wants to earn more, or to understand the psychology of the workplace or of men. Brilliant, compassionate and wise.”
