So, this has been covered on a few feminist blogs – a recent study has shown that men with “traditional” gender attitudes get paid significantly more than not only women, but also get paid more than men with more egalitarian gender attitudes. Women with more egalitarian gender attitudes are paid a little more than women with traditional gender attitudes. The study controlled for job complexity, number of hours worked and education.
