When I first arrived in Norway, I was happy to work at a place where each person was treated equally, regardless of gender, race, or age. Sometime later, I realized that the salaries of men were higher than the salaries of women, especially in the tech area.
Since I work in tech myself, my first feeling was frustration.
How come even though Scandinavia was the most progressive geographical area in terms of gender equality, it still presented such a disparity? Was it a tech thing, a gender issue, or perhaps both?
