honcho.jpg Women paid less for comparable work

In the survey, conducted among the 259 members of the Financial Women’s Association of 259 members, 96% said women are paid less than men for comparable work. Nearly two-thirds consider their gender a factor that holds them back in their careers, and many cited a lack of access to decision-makers, mentors, or type of assignments critical for career advancement. Entrepreneurs also felt they had limited access to funding sources need to start a business.

a huge part of the issue is the imbalance in the overall power structure. the preponderance of males at the top leads to a system that overvalues masculine qualities and undervalues feminine qualities. this is prevalent in all realms of society and apparent in all institutions.
