Re: All else being equal...

The important measure is men and women in the same job with the same level of experience/qualifications/seniority. From the article, it looks like this difference is about 4%, due in large part to Oracle basing starting pay on a person's previous pay. Still a problem, but not nearly as large.

Just to say "men get significantly more than women" doesn't look at the roles the men and women are in. In general, Silicon Valley pays technologists more than business-side personnel (damn!), so if your engineers, architects and coders are mostly male (which we all know they are), then that skews the comparison between genders.
