Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says female professors at major U.S. medical universities work longer hours, but earn less money than male counterparts. What is up with that??

In 2007, the authors conducted a mailed survey of 3,080 life sciences faculty at the 50 universities whose medical schools received the greatest amount of National Institutes of Health funding in 2004.
Women in life science research still make less money than their male counterparts, even those at the higher levels of their academic and professional careers, according to a study published in the April issue of Academic Medicine.
Among professors, the women reported greater numbers of hours worked per week and greater numbers of administrative and professional activities than did the men. Female faculty members reported fewer publications across all ranks.
After control for professional characteristics and productivity, female researchers in the life sciences earned, on average, a whopping $13,226 less annually than did their male counterparts. 
Something is up with the medical profession and it is not equality at the major medical schools!  We have a problem with this situation!
