National Equal Pay Day!
Here is to the women that pursue leadership roles in the workforce. I do support women in gaining gender equality. Why would you not? Seriously though our country would be so much more advanced than it is now. The stereotypes will die down and everyone will have a better understanding of respect. I respect my mother, fiancee and future mother-in-law and support them to succeed. Young men are taught to be leaders. It is okay for a boy to be ambitious, but as soon as a girl shows leadership it less excepting. Why? The United States has broken many glass ceilings, but I feel that soon one more will break and I will be happy to raise a family and daughter under those circumstances. (No mom we're not pregnant)
