Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No reason not to include men who work low paid and insecure jobs but my point really is that the money going into saving the world from recession is not being distributed in a gender neutral way.  Women are proportionally much more likely to be in the low paid, insecure jobs than men are, and women are not paid fairly for doing the same work as a man, hence the gender pay gap.  Women are also more likely to hold multiple part time casual contracts than men are and increasingly families (single parent or otherwise) rely on the woman's income to keep them out of poverty.
