Reviewing the Gender Gap in Earnings
Because there will be a test later on. Well, no, but I get exasperated when people employ false arguments to explain the reasons why women earn less than men.

Part 2. Empirical evidence, what it tells us and what it does not tell us.
Part 3. How to talk to wingnuts on this topic if you must (channeling Ann Coulter)
