I have no interest in conspiracy theories. I am entirely a pragmatist. This is the title of your article and your premise:

The Myth of the Glass Ceiling

For years I heard that women are paid only a fraction of what men are paid.”

You have not sufficiently disproved that this is indeed the case — as it empiraclly is (e.g., Lilly Ledbetter). I don’t disagree that whomever cares for children is often financially disadvantaged but that is not the entire story, as evidenced by my cites that indicate that even when men go into “pink collar” jobs they make more than women do.

You are the one who has an agenda that is not supported by facts. Do your research and stop drawing inane conclusions (e.g., most workplace accidents happen to men who do dangerous and dirty jobs so therefore all women are living like queens off the backs of those men), even though most jobs in America are service or desk jobs.
