Jiaxi Lu, Washington Post: Women still face disparities in the workplace -- female workers on average are paid 77 cents for every dollar male workers make and only 4.2 percent of chief executives at Fortune 500 companies are women. But a recent study shows women outperform men in raising money online via crowdfunding sites, such as Kickstarter, where backers make monetary contributions to projects they like in exchange for small rewards -- such as sharing a piece of the project and getting limited editions of the creative works.

The kickstarters aren't promising any significant rewards so it's basically an appeal to sympathy. Guess who gets more sympathy when asking for a handout, men or women. In addition, men are suckers for a pretty face.

If women can exploit these basic facts to their benefit, more power to them. Jeebus knows that they've got the short end of the stick from time immemorial.
