Due to their continuously increasing population, the Incas had an endless demand for cloth. Every year a government official would inspect the ten-year-old girls in the town, and take with them only the best-looking so they could devote themselves to the state. The most beautiful of the girls were chosen for sacrifice to the gods, while others weren’t as lucky and labored for the state, learning trades like cooking and brewing. Mostly these women learned how to spin for cloth. After four years of effective indentured servitude these girls would be reassigned as concubines of the ruler or, if the ruler saw fit, as the wives of men the ruler wanted to honor.

Some women left husbands at home to keep house, while they went out to work long hours for $3 or $4 a week" (Bogle, 2000). Women were really desperate for work, so women did any job they could find, and women accepted any pay given.

In the 1980s, as a result of a neoliberal influence in Latin America women were forced to pick up jobs that were not deemed suitable for them and work for wages less than men because men were losing wages and jobs.

Can it be stopped? Absolutely. In this intelligently argued and carefully researched book, Getting Even: Why Women Don 't Get Paid Like Men--And What to Do About It, Evelyn Murphy, Ph.D., examines how much women (and their families) lose over a lifetime to the wage gap, knocks down the myth that women ‘choose’ to make less, and documents the widespread discrimination that 's holding down women 's pay.” The book says that most people believe the pay gap is disappearing slowly, but this is not the case. It says that the pay gap should have ended a decade ago. But, for several years in the 1990s the pay gap widened (Murphy, 17).
