FIGHT FOR EQUAL PAY
For far too long, women have been discriminated in the workplace because conventional thinking has been that men could do the job better and faster than their female counterparts. Not only were women excluded from higher paid positions but it was felt that women were not deserving of the same pay for various reasons. As a woman and a physician, I have always been required to work the same hours and assume the same responsibilities as my male counterparts so it is only fitting that there should be pay equity. This is an injustice that I will prioritize because our daughters deserve to be given the same opportunities as our sons and be paid the same for so doing.
