The wage gap is not apparent to everyone. It's easy to think that if one doesn't see it, it doesn't exist-however blindness is not an excuse to deny someone else the right to be paid equally for the same work. No two people are going to be exactly alike and this is the excuse constantly given. If I'm overqualified for a job but do the same work and the same amount as someone else, the pay should be the same. One conversation with a woman who is an engineer, and who has to deal with far more than the wage gap, could clarify things.
