Women's pay

Fast Company, one of my favourite business magazines, has an article on the jobs in which women earn more than men. Among them were aerospace engineer, sales engineer, and statistician, which I thought a nice trio to counter stereotypes.

The article also links to another FC article on how to improve your income, based on Warren Farrell's research. Apparently, a good part of the gender gap in pay favouring men is that men are more likely to put in ridiculous hours and move to terrible locations for work, rather than discrimination at the workplace:
Farrell's point is that men's actions lead to their having more income. Conversely, what women do leads to more balanced lives. But anyone who's willing can up their earnings by engaging in these tactics. On the other hand, if you're seeking a life with more sanity, these are the behaviors to avoid.
