Hire only females?

As I consider another opinion regarding the well-known “pay gap” of women vs. men (approximately 20 percent less for a woman) — the letter “Congress, close pay gap” (Nov. 27 and TribLIVE.com) — can someone please answer a question for me?

If a woman with the same skills, experience level and productivity as a man is generally paid 20 percent less than a man doing the same job, why wouldn't a business hire only female employees and immediately increase its profit (or put its competitors out of business)? What am I missing? I have four daughters and this concerns me.
