So, essentially, there are two components to pay equity. One would be that men and women receive the same pay for the same work, given equal experience, performance, etc. It would seem that we are close to having achieved this, and in any case it is illegal for employers to do otherwise. The other component would be that men are disproportionately represented in high-paying, managerial jobs (and that women are disproportionately represented in low paying jobs like the ones mentioned in post #4.) I think we are further from having achieved this.
