    No matter what the crisis, women Et Al are affected more severely. The wage gap is a self-serving fembot urban legend. When you control for age/years of experience/NUMBER OF HOURS WORKED/same occupation/other relevant factors, then then wage gap vanishes.
    (example) When Google did a Wage Audit of their own employees, they discovered Men were the under paid gender.
    Fear of running afoul of the myriad of the in your face governmental regulations, ensures that Google is far from the only employer discriminating against “some” men. Happy Ending- Google fixed the pay gap. I assume fixing the pay gap was done out of purely self interest, in wanting to attract talented employees to join Google. Capitalism has an OODA feedback loop, that rewards companies, after they make correct decisions.
