The gender wage gap

Seen today on Prince Arthur Avenue. The checkmarks on the “No” side demonstrate an ironic lack of chivalry given the street name, don’t you think? We have some work to do, but it’s heartening to see people taking this debate to the streets. Wage equality should be so much more than an academic discussion, a trendy topic in the news (that Sony hack is like the gift that keeps on giving!) or exclusive to boardrooms and the corporate world. Women’s rights and gender equality matter – it’s pretty sad that this is even up for debate in Canadian society. I hope that we’ll finally bridge this gap in my generation.
