Equal Pay for Women


Women all over the world face inequality when it comes to pay.  It’s not just in the United States.

It shouldn’t be that way.  We make strides — for a while — but it never lasts.

Each of us needs to determine, in our own minds, what we are worth.  Then we need to stand up and clearly declare our value as a Person, not just as a Woman.

Traditionally, women devalue themselves — we are taught to do so — but we are NOT worth less than men.  We are not “weaker” then men, we are not less smart, we are not less capable.

Genitalia  do not equal worth.  The willingness to work, the intelligence to work, that is what matters in the work place.  It should be all that matters.  But, until we, as women, value ourselves, our employers will not.

 

Below is a TED talk that helps illuminate the problem.
