Following the publication of another gender pay gap article, I wondered: What kinds of gender gaps do people think are important to talk about? Googling stuff is a crude measure of just this. The results:

  • “gender wage gap” 448,000
  • “gender pay gap” 462,000
  • “gender income gap”, 14,000
  • “gender wealth gap” 4,340

vs.

  • “gender lifespan gap” 20
  • “gender mortality gap” 452
  • “gender life expectancy gap” 948
  • “gender height gap” 258
  • “gender jail gap” 5
  • “gender crime gap” 204
  • “gender strength gap” 8
  • “gender violence gap” 8
  • “gender assault gap” 0
  • “gender murder gap” 1
  • “gender work hours gap” 4
  • “gender risk gap” 5

I couldn’t think of any more gender gaps, but the pattern seems pretty clear…
