Also, equal pay is a big issue. I believe we’re at a point where women have not only shown their leadership, but have shown their value in societies around the world. So, we believe we deserve at least equal pay to men.
But it has been embedded in our culture for centuries, this double standard of what women should do, and the role that men should play. That’s what we have been raised to believe. However, I believe that eventually that perception will be eliminated, because various women in different leadership roles have been able to show that we are equal with men.”
