One thing the article didn't mention, which I wondered about, was whether men and women tended to apply for the same jobs at the same rate. Do women pitch at slightly lower paid jobs, which they think they can get as new graduates, where men pitch at jobs which would be better paid but perceived as harder to get?
I think there is probably something in this, in addition to the usual problems of "boys club" industries like Architecture and Law, and the undervaluing of women's abilities in general.
I too despair for my daughter on days like these.
