Equal Pay for Equal Work Over many years, women have been gradually given more rights such as owning property and voting, but one thing that has remained the same is that the females are not getting paid as much as men. It is important to close this pay gap because women are getting about 80% of what men are getting paid for the same work. Studies are also showing that women are charged more or have to spend more money than men. Equal pay is becoming more important as the minorities increase in the nation because the economy will suffer if a huge percentage of its workforce is getting paid 50-60 cents on the dollar. As more women are taking up the work force, it is important to pay them as much as the working men.

Although both men and women have the same qualifications, it is statistically evident that men have a greater likelihood of getting hired. As a result of men being hired more, women consequently tend to feel inferior. . Kay and Shipman state,“ Compared with men, women don’t consider themselves as ready for promotions, they predict they’ll do worse on tests, and they generally underestimate their abilities. This disparity stems from factors ranging from upbringing to biology.” These feelings of inferiority then cause women to never fully explore their potential, thus fulfilling that prophecy that women are less qualified than men.

In ancient Chinese society, the traditional Confucianism regard women as lowly and weak belongings of man, even in modern China, such beliefs still affect Chinese society. For example, women naturally take on more responsibility for house care. This pattern means that men get a better shot at a pay rise or a promotion than their female colleagues and are less likely to be in jobs for which they are overqualified.
