    Very interesting article by the Center for American Progress. Although based on America, I do think it's interesting for the rest of the West as well:

    Although I don't feel the author's case is particularly strong when proving the wage gap, she makes a valid conclusion:

    (Original post by Kate Bahn)
    In order to improve the labor market frictions that women experience and improve their conditions of their job searches and their workplace lives, policymakers must address how women’s life circumstances affect how they interact with the economy.
    It's just a shame she doesn't suggest how policy makers can do that.
