I have not been paid less than my male or female coworkers unless they had more seniority than me - unions and state jobs. I have never thought my worth was any less than anyone else or because I was a woman. My grandmother was of the era that the men made the decisions but she has been fine the last 25 years without him. My mother was always equal partner with my father and did just as much physical work as he did on the ranch. I guess I am blessed not to have experienced what some women do and my point was that I need to have empathy for those unlike me.
