Isn't this a feeling? How can we use it a proper objective parameter?

And 43% report that male colleagues are paid more without reason.

And the proof is? Without reason could again be a feeling or may be they are not aware of reasons.

At my workplace, this does not happen. There are policies that are followed when it comes to salaries and promotions. While the system is not perfect by any means it does reduce the amount of subjectivity in the process.

I am not saying that discrimination does not exist. There might be workplaces where there are not enough policies and adherence to it where people can get away with. In those places, IMO, it has nothing to do with sex but more to do with politicking.

P.S. I did not read the aritcle/news/? you linked to.

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
