One reason for women to earn less than men hasn't been mentioned.

I remember all-too-well an occasion in the UK, when a woman refused a raise
because she would then be earning more than her husband who worked in
another department of the same company. They're still happily married. I
don't think he ever found out.

"Many terms which have now dropped out of favour will be revived, and those
that are at present respectable will drop out,
if usage so choose, with whom lies the decision, the judgement, and the
rule of speech" -- Horace, _Ars Poetica_
