Equal pay for equal work has been the law in the United States since 1963, but the gap between men and women just won't go away. This week, California enacted the toughest law in the nation, putting companies on notice that they have to erase the difference. But even some feminists argue that women bring the problem on themselves by not being aggressive enough and subscribing — unconsciously -- to gender bias. They insist California's new law will do more harm than good — while supporters hope for momentum toward equal pay nationwide.
