Re: All else being equal...

It's because women are less desirable employees in a free market. Be that wrong and / or illegal, it is also a fact. For instance because of maternity leave, childcare, likelihood of leaving career, etc.

If I ran my own small company I would be less likely to employ female employees for those reasons. They have a cost and a risk. And those realities are reflected in the market.
