What needs to be done is for MEN to rebel against the 80-hour work week.
As long as males are available to serve at them employer's pleasure, of
course they will achieve more than women who are not willing to do this.
However, many men (and some women) may feel that they want the rewards
of working long hours, and they will fuel the 'race to the bottom'. So
what's really needed is for the AAAS to get involved in a drive for a
40-hour work week for scientists. We need a union. (Well, you
researchers do -- I'm in the small college teaching business, which is
where you go if you want a life :-) )
