You stated "gender counts against them in the job interview".
The most relevant empirical scientific study shows the complete opposite.
Total employment numbers are apparently based on something completely different than you stated. Hmm... maybe it's because actually, despite being biased towards hiring women, despite thousands of special programs to try and convince women otherwise, more men are interested in this type of work.
College sports are the same way. Studies have shown that a much higher percentage of men than women are interested in participation in sports in college. So those women who are interested in college sports participation have vastly more opportunities in college sports than men do, because they have fewer women pursuing the same amount of available positions.
Would it completely destroy your worldview to realize that men and women have different interests? And that women can be discriminated in favor of, yet still make up a lower percentage in a group because they just aren't interested in being in the group?
The relevant statistic for equal opportunity is for equally qualified individuals,do men have an advantage over women in the hiring process because of their sex. The answer from the study is the opposite. Women actually have a huge advantage. If you are looking for fairness, you'd be demanding that women get less of an advantage in hiring, not more.
