    I think this says more about reality television than about gender relations in the real world.

    Are you agreeing that there is a disparity?

    And I think woman should challenge this by being more aggressive about standing up for themselves and not necessarily conforming to social norms but doing what they want to do regardless of society's expectations of them are.

    Paid the same if no more than your male counterparts. And that there is the problem. Why should you have to work harder? Because you're a woman.
