Workin’ 9 to 5 (…and not putting the onus solely on women for equal pay)

“Asking women to take responsibility for closing the pay gap with their ace negotiating skills is sort of like teaching women self-defense as a way of addressing sexual assault. It puts the burden on women to figure this out as individuals — it doesn’t ask much of employers, and it doesn’t really address the bigger issue.”
~ Ann Friedman, Women Can’t End the Wage Gap on Their Own, New York Magazine
