    How about women getting paid 70 cents on the dollar? The best studies say
    they get paid 99.5 cents/100 cents by men, within the best margins of error
    we have on the subject. Genders’ wages and salaries are pretty much
    identical now. The commonly-used figure comes from a 2-decades-old study
    which arrived at this calculation by taking total expected lifetime income,
    removing the income for years in which many women have children and raise
    them, and then dividing by average life expectancy. Totally disingenuous.
