librarian.net » Why isn’t your headline “why the hell are women still earning less than men?!?!”

This one's from Jessamyn; She comments on a Library Journal article on the value of an MLIS (Master of Library and Information Science, I think), and asks why women are still earning less than men.

I also seem to recall some figures from years ago that stated that, though women made up something like 75% of library staff (I think it was an Australian study, so I'll say "In Australia", though it could have well been a study from the States), they earned something like 10% than men in the same or similar positions, and that only 45%(ish) of management positions went to women.
