the last book I ever read (Strange Justice: The Selling of Clarence Thomas, excerpt six)

from Strange Justice: The Selling of Clarence Thomas by Jane Mayer and Jill Abramson:

Thomas was also quite taken with Sowell’s controversial opinion of women. Acquaintances remembered Thomas’s approvingly paraphrasing Sowell’s view that the reason women earned substantially less than men on average was that many women wanted it that way: they took less demanding jobs so they could drop in and out to have babies. Later Thomas would echo this theory when, as chairman of the EEOC, he was forced to wrestle with the issue of pay inequity between the sexes.
