Pay Equality Between Men And Women Is More Important Than We Let On

Everyone deserves to be paid what they’re worth.

Pay Equality Between Men And Women Is More Important Than We Let On

Everyone knows that Hollywood has been vocal about a lot of issues lately. From the #MeToo movement to just starting conversations about equality issues in the workplace to the lack of equality in pay for women, Hollywood has made it known where they stand and who they stand with.

There are several reasons why we all need to start discussing the important of the pay gap for women.

1. Women work just as hard as men

Believe it or not, women work just as hard and sometimes harder than men. Therefore, they need to be paid accordingly.

2. Women have more degrees than men

According to the Association Of University Women, women are more likely to have more degrees than men.

3. It could end poverty

Poverty is a huge problem in America and there are many ways to help with this. By implementing equal pay for women it could add $12 to $28 trillion to global GDP by 2025.

4. Women deserve it

Women work very hard and studies have shown that women are more productive and less distracting than men.

5. Women make up half the workforce

I know some might be surprised by this fact, but it’s true. Women make up over half of the workplace, yet in 2015 they earned just 80 cents for every dollar that men earned.

No matter where you stand on this issue just think how you would feel if you weren’t being paid fairly. You would want to stand up and earn what you deserve, women want the same thing. Let’s stand up for equality in the workplace!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."
