The great gender debate.

As female this subject naturally raises my blood pressure, and I would like to think in this day and age that we are all equals, males and females, but I would be quite naive in thinking that, because it is far from true.

In news published this week it seems the salary gap between males and females is increasing.  To start with the outlook is good, Junior Managers on average, if female, earn more than males for the first time, but as careers progress its swaps over. On average female managers are now paid around £31,000 where male managers doing exactly the same job are paid around £42,000, over £10,000 more!

This can damage UK Business and alienates all those women at the top by paying their cohorts more money for the same work.

Emmeline Pankhurst did a hell of a lot for use girls as well as other numerous revolutionaries when it came to women’s rights. And that was all that time ago, you’d think that now we would have got a point that things were equal.

Now I’ll step down from my high horse. As a self employed female I can command a certain wage, which I am completely happy with, but I imagine there are men out there who make a hell of a lot more money than I do, doing the same job. Of course there are, the difference being is I don’t know, I don’t work along side any men.

At the end of the day, yes it is frustrating, but as long as people are being paid correctly for the particular job they do then it should make individuals quite happy, but we can’t deny that it is sexism and can be incredibly insulting to either sex.

Are we going to have to burn our bras again? I don’t know if I can really be bothered! I know thats a bit of a defeatist attitude, but I’m sure there are much more enraged females out there! I’ll support you, from the comfort of my sofa.
