Women’s workforce: There is still a lot to be done


Picture Source: Blog http://www.girledworld.com/blog/

It has been a deeply challenging and emotional week. Be a woman, a mother, a foreigner with a strong accent and work are some of the challenges that me and you have to face every day.

Waking up in the morning and already feeling down, thinking, questioning and realizing that I make less money, because I am a woman and/or a foreigner. Later in the day, I confirmed my morning nightmare by reading the article from the Huffington Post: “Women Graduates ‘Earn £6,500 Less Than Men Five Years After Leaving University”, according to UK Department of Education.

Then, I cannot forget to mention this  article from The Atlantic, published a year ago, talking about Gender inequality in the workplace.

It has been a year … We made a lot of progress, but there is still a lot of things to be done.
