Gender bias is so intrinsically woven into modern society it gets overlooked and thus becomes a non-discussion point. Consider reading this book which covers wage bias, and also more subtle vexing things.
This is essentially a collection of statistics which entail how systems made by men and for men are minimizing and marginalizing the other 50% of the population. It does this by breaking the statistics down into chapter-spanning categories and creating a cohesive narrative to explain how all of these events are related and come back to the same basic problem.
It might not be uplifting to read all these statistics and honestly for eachone mentioned there are probably many others which will occur to you from life. Take for example mammograms. Women get mammograms as necessary, however the mamogram machine was designed by a man and literally is very humiliating and debasing as far as squeeze machine technology goes (who knows what the future will hold) but what if the screening proceedure had been developed by a female not a male physician (?)
Women shouldn't be living lives weighed against an un-fair standard and only by getting both genders to read up on and begin discussing solutions to the inequality will things change for the better. Check it out!
