Why do women end up poorer in retirement?

Is super fair?
Women retire with substantially less super than men, but that’s because they take time off work to care for children and elderly parents, right? Well, that’s not the whole story. Women retire with far less superannuation than men, even if they continue to work full time and don’t take time away from paid work to act as a carer.
