In India, YES. But the women have to break the glass ceiling. Certain positions in Armed Forces, places in Boards of Companies, etc.

As per the Monster Salary Index 2016, BCCI pays only Rs 15 lakh retainer to Grade A women’s team players. It pays nearly Rs 2 crore to Grade A men's team players. #GenderPayGap #ETWomensForum

No

First the question should be do women who are equally qualified as men are working with same vigour and intellect as their male counter part. Do they put in same number of working hours as their male counter part. #NoPainNoGain

No

If you believe there is gender pay gap, I welcome you to drag the employer committing the crime to courts with the same data you quote, as that is a crime. If not, please stop peddling your baseless myth. These myths have already been busted multiple times.

Yes

The market mechanism is not a cure all. There have been situations when governments had to intervene to fix social ills - slavery for instance.

No

Agreed, women r not available 4 less salaries, but many women r available 4 filing #fakecases on innocent men. Please support #GenderEquality in terms of laws. In case of salaries, an individual should get basis on their knowledge, experience & type of work.

No

At the end of the day rather than talking about legal measures to do so and so.. let's just let the market determine people's salary levels. Rather than putting people into massive buckets like men and women, let the market do what it does best - price finding
