Ehrm, What is the Problem
It sounds like the heated discussion between Equality of Opportunity and equality of outcome.
The first should be stimulated and encouraged.
The second leads to 'box ticking'.
All in my opinion of course, I may be wrong.
My perception is that a pay-gap definitely exists and that some professions and/or social cirkels are hard to enter. This is not the exclusive complaint for women, men struggle as well to attain certain heights.
Whether you believe the differences between the chromosome pairs are biological or social, I think trying to obtain the 'social-dilemma-resolution-of-the-day' by legislating the equality of outcome will not produce the best results.
It is probably best to accept that individuals are *different* in any which way you whish to look at it without inventing labels for every fad-of-the-day just to segregate groups.
A meritocracy is preferred in the workplace, but old and new social constructs put a stick in the spokes.
Personally I prefer a capable co-worker or manager and do not mind the chromosomes or preferred social adjective. Like religion: Keep it civil and polite and leave it at home.
Just some thoughts.
