Wages of women workers in franchises are less than men's

The graph above from ADP Research Institute did not quite fit the subjects that Ahu Yildirmaz and I discussed so I did not insert it into the article. But the chart is interesting. It is from an ADP two-year review of franchise data from 2014 and 2015 (pdf). I thought some readers would find the discrepancy of pay between male and female workers at franchises of interest.

The workforce in franchises consists of more women than other employers. However, women who work in franchises still make considerably less than their male counterparts. 

Are there any insights on why there is this large discrepancy, or why franchises have more women workers than non-franchised businesses?
