Gender Equality

Why aren't women payed more and treated better?

What I wanted to find out

It surprised me to learn that women weren't paid as much as men, only 77 cents for every dollar (Your Right to Equal Pay). I wanted to know why that was, as well as where it all started, and what it would do if we had equal wages.

My Big Question- Why are women paid less than men for working just as hard?

I found many answers....

Most of these connected with reasons why women weren't allowed to vote.

  • Some women are considered less educated, and are thought of to not lead a job as well.
  • Having females be equal could put men down and make them feel less superior
  • Women simply don't have what it takes and don't deserve the money they work for
