The yawning gap

minding the gap

Thanks for sharing this link, Daniela. Besides a gap in pay, there are huge gaps in hours that men work for pay and women work for pay. I don't think men and women should have to work the same amount of hours in the workforce since, for the most part, women have far more unpaid responsibilities. It is just an indicator of women's economic power and opportunity. This gap in pay brings me back to Maria de Chirikof story about being one inch tall (http://www.worldpulse.com/node/7166) and having to take care of so much with so little.

Does anyone have solutions or stories in their workplace or community or know of active campaigns in their country?

Best,

Lisa
