This NYT article focuses on systemic solutions to the pay gap between men and women (such as publish everyone's pay and create flexible work policies that accommodate mothers) with only a small nod to what women can do behaviorally to close the gap (learn to negotiate better). Expecting all women to change their behavior to match the prevailing male norm isn't going to solve the problem of unconscious gender bias and the resulting pay gap. Changing workplace policies and practices will improve the workplace for everyone, including men, and level the playing field for women. Enjoy this good read here!
