Battle of the sexes or family power talk!
Politicians, social scientist, gender specialists and feminist have been discussing and debating about gender pay inequity for decades. However the bottom line remains is unchanged, men still earn more than woman. According to an article written by Claudia Goldin entitled “Change the Gender Pay Gap, Change the Way We Work”, published in Bloomberg News, as of 2010 earnings of median full-time full year female workers stood at 77% of the median of male workers. “For recent college grads it’s even lower”. Further, the pay gap increases with age. Women’s earnings start off at par but decrease over decades. There are several reasons for this. First there is what I call the “occupation factor”. Science and technology jobs usually pay more. However, most women don’t pursue science and technology degrees. As a result, their pay remains lower than their male counterparts. Golding doesn’t agree with this. She argues that “pay inequity is “concentrated within professions”. That is women don’t earn less because of the professions that they choose, but earn less within their chosen professions for various other reasons.
The mission behind World Women Global Council is empowering global communities by bringing women to the forefront defining success and family values at its core. I am very proud to see this global platform of women helping each other. Read More…
