Solution :-

The wage distribution among men and women has been a major concern for society. Women are mostly paid less than women men and one major reason for this is the meager education qualification of women. They are employed in sectors that do no provide them with proper maternity leaves, child care benefits, and other provisions and are also responsible for managing the household work. Hence they are paid less than men. Skill is another reason why wages for women are less than for men. Men are considered more skillful in comparison to women, despite equal physical work. Due to these reasons, women are employed in low-paid work.
