Why Do Women Make Less Than Men?

I live within a mile of SDSU and KPBS, and I have to say as a professional woman in my 30's, raising a daughter of my own, it's pretty discouraging, though not surprising to hear the stats quoted on the show. How can women be seen as having equal value when they themselves see their value through a lens of sexuality? Every day I see the throngs of female students parading up and down College and Montezuma wearing bikini tops, micro mini skirts and sky high heels, night and day, year-round, and I don't know whether to laugh at their stupidity, or cry out of embarrassment. Here they are, spending tens of thousands of dollars on a college education, meanwhile undermining their own efforts, and the efforts of all women on their behalf, by advertising that their primary value as decorative objects? These girls have so little confidence in themselves, are so unconvinced of their own value, and so short-sighted so close to graduation, that they continue to chase male attention, and little more than that, at all costs. It is no surprise to me whatsoever that women are not taken seriously in the workplace. I cannot take them seriously, and it grieves me that they harm the cause of equality for all women with their blatant ignorance and callous disregard of the fight of decades of women before them.
