Men still outdistances women in pay making about 30 to 40 cents more on the dollar than women.
Women still do not enjoy full and equal treatment under the law even after the passage of the Lily Ledbetter Act of 2009 signed into law by President Obama. The law said that women had the legal right to get paid the same pay as men. Imagine civil rights of women still being written in 2009.
For no purpose other than informational, women were not counted on the US population Census until 1850. Of course, you know that women did not get the right to vote until the 1920's.
About the auto insurance, I suppose that generalizations are made about male drivers and teenage drivers having the propensity to speed more so than women. This may be one of the reasons that men pay higher insurance premiums than men. This is a generalization and is only my opinion.
The wage difference between men and the insurance rates are independent variables of each other and should not be used in comparison to explaim diffierence in auto insurance premiums.
