Product Description:
#35367 Women In The Workplace - The Pay Gap: Sexism or Something Else? (Run time 9 min.) DVD $19.95

Warren Farrell protested alongside Gloria Steinem in support of women's rights and was even elected to the board of NOW-three times. But Farrell is also the author of Why Men Earn More: The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap-and What Women Can Do About It. In this brief ABC News segment, John Stossel considers the opposing views of Farrell and Martha Burk, chair of the NCWO and author of Cult of Power: Sex Discrimination in Corporate America and What Can Be Done About It. It's about supply and demand, states Farrell, not sexism: higher compensation generally means bigger sacrifices on the home front-a cost most women are statistically less willing to bear than men.
