Why Are Women Not Paid The Same As Men?

I have been tip toeing around this in my head. I thought I knew why, but actually I think I’m as much a victim of my own preconceptions as anyone! So basically I’m zeroing what I know. Please help me understand.

So here is my question. I am saddened by this situation and angry too. Mostly I am curious.

Why are women paid less than their male counterparts doing the same work?

There is lots written on this here, here and here.

I want to understand it and then I want to help destroy the system that supports it. I have two daughters and the thought that they may be discriminated against because of their gender – or any reason really – boils my blood.
