obvious question - up to you to respond

who is 'our'?
or if not exactly who, but what do they do?
why would the company pay less to women? I don't mean to put it this way, but are the women just stupid in not asking for an appropriate salary? ignorant? Or is there some other impediment? What is the justification on the company's part? Companies wouldn't do this for an arbitrary reason - if I'm an employer, I would want to pay as low as I could while getting the help I needed (employment is not a right), and if one group accepts less I don't see any issue there, assuming all other requirements/benefits etc are equal (they are in government).

Each industry is facing this issue in its own way and at a different pace, definitely.

curious - and you know this because?

To shorten this discussion, I won't respond beyond this inquiry...
