I identify as a social Democrat with a lot of Christian Social Democracy tendencies. Therefore, I am fairly left politically at least in America. I have reviewed many studies and although a wage gap does exist it does not seem to be caused due to sexism. It seems to be caused by experience, types of jobs taken and women being far more likely to not be agressive when asking for a raise, taking more time out of the work force due to child birth and being penalized for taking care of their child. So I think a far better solution is paid maternal and paternal leave so employees can not be effected due to a pregnancy. If bona fide studies reveal it is due solely because of sexism I will gladly change my views and position, but studies seem to point to other factors. Sorry, fellow social democrats.
