In accordance with the White House, full-time working women earn 77% of what their male counterparts earn. Ultimately, this implies that women must work an additional 3 months in order to earn what men did in the previous year. This pin acts as a visual display for the multiple ways in which women are discriminated against for simply gender. In a world where women are beginning to rely less on men for financial prospects, we should strive towards pay equity. This step is claims making.
There is still the unfortunate tendency to consider male norms as a measure for women's position. Providing women and men with the same opportunities is the first step; but for true gender equality to be achieved there is a need for gender equity. • "Gender equity is the process of being fair to women and men." (UNFPA)
