This matters to me because I live in a patriarch system which increasingly makes it difficult for me has a woman to get a head, let alone not have equal pay! We are in the 21's century now, we should have equal pay to men. We make 20 thousand dollars less at the highest earned university degree! If the tables were turned would that be fair? If men were paid 20 thousand dollars less than women at the highest earned university degree would that be fair? It would not! Let's be treated fair in the workplace. It is time.
