This is my proudest work while working as a political analyst at Journal of Politics and International Affairs.
I remember writing this in the Summer (2015), trying to make sure I had the correct and reliable sources; to make sure that what I was saying was rational and sensible. But most of all, I wanted to make sure that what I was saying could resonate with a lot of people. I always want my writing to be a positive influence.
It is in long-form, yes. It would take a little while to finish the whole thing, but I really urge people to get used to the term “wage gap” because it is a real, tangible problem all over the world.
Why should women earn less than men for the same work?
