  1. Having read the WP version, which is quite detailed as well as having the fairest headline, I have the question: is the salary gap due to the men with traditional views have wives staying at home and doing all the labour there, so that they (the men) can devote themselves more entirely to their work and therefore command higher salaries?

  2. I think the BBC got the headline right. So-called “traditional” views are sexist. And I had the same thought as urbanmkr about the cause of the salary gap. I’m sure my husband would be able to earn more if he didn’t split child care equally with me (and do most of the cleaning, since I am a slob). For the same reason, I didn’t find it all surprising that women who favor gender equality earn more that women who don’t.
