In response to Caroline ffiske: What we need is a bigger gender pay gap,

At Christmas, we and extended family had among other things, a hugely enjoyable fun team game, men/boys v women/girls, whereby team members pass tissue paper snowmen to each other via straws. The boys won every time, due to various factors; less giggling, practical organisation of their team according to height etc etc.
At the end I said with a smirk, ‘Now you all know why there is a so-called gender pay gap!’ to which one of my nieces replied, ‘But we were all doing the same thing!’
‘Aha,’ said her father (my engineer brother), ‘But we were doing it well.’
