First, a few numbers. . . Wage gap : Most optimistic estimates: Women make 82¢ on the dollar compared to men for the same work. Wealth gap : 57% of men negotiated their starting salary, 7% of women do. This generates an average initial wage disparity of $4,000/yr. This adds up to $.5M over a career. Justice department says 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted. Women are 3 times as likely as men to be murdered by an intimate partner.

Next, an important distinction. . . Conscious vs. nonconcious bias: We may hold attitudes that we are unaware of, and that we would disavow if we knew about them. Nonconscious attitudes can manifest themselves in our behavior. Project Implicit: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/demo/ “an analysis of more than 900,000 completed Implicit Association Tests suggested that more than 70% of test takers associated White people with good and Black people with bad more strongly than the reverse.” These measures of implicit attitudes show little or no correlation with explicitly-reported attitudes. Subjects subliminally exposed to African-American faces showed more aggressive behavior than those exposed to White faces (Bargh, Chen, & Burrows, 1996)
