Equal Pay: Just Be Aggressive! Says the Critics
April 18, 2012 8 Comments
Yesterday was Equal Pay Day. It seems, in just about every conversation regarding the pay gap, someone suggests that women just aren’t as aggressive in seeking promotions and raises. It’s a rather annoying argument, because it plays into the stereotype of the nurturing, conflict avoidant Woman, and we all know that women aren’t a monolithic group. The only thing that women have in common is that we are given the label “woman.”
To answer this bogus argument, I decided to do something a little different, and created a photo essay. Enjoy!
Note: Read the definition of the “Exceptional Woman.”
Also, you can pause the slideshow if it’s moving too fast for you. I couldn’t extend the time in between shots, sorry.
