30 Days of Discrimination Towards WOMEN. Womens History Month
UPDATE. Income Inequality & Workplace Harassment were the biggest part of my inspiration for doing what I do.
The Paycheck Fairness Act introduced & passed in the House of Representatives in April of 2019, one of the 400 House Bills languishing of the desk of Senate Leader Mitch McConnell's desk, when Ratified will address the Income Inequality part of that equation:
H.R.7 - Paycheck Fairness Act To amend the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 to provide more effective remedies to victims of discrimination in the payment of wages on the basis of sex, and for other purposes.
Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment will take care of the Harassment. Situations like this highlight why WOMEN do still need the legal protection of the ERA.
For anyone who's ever wanted to tell their boss to "Take this Job & Shove it," below is a case study of one of my "All-Time Bad Bosses." The striking thing about this one is that it was a Tele-Commuting Work-from-Home position, & this guy was able to reach out from the Internet & attack us from long distance.
One of this guy's biggest problems is that he watches too much TV. Read below:
Encore Presentation of my March 31st post. April 15th is Income Tax Day. Is it OK to "attack Women on income Tax day" particularly when the FACT is that the Legislators who wrote this Tax Code were likely MEN?
When we study the past, it is to improve our present & future.
It is not enough to celebrate history for history's sake, then rest on our laurels & marvel at our accomplishments with a congratulatory pat on the back.
This is WHY we study history: to take those lessons from the past to make life better for everyone.
I have spent most of the month of March recognizing the past historic achievements of women, then tried to put it all together to encourage people to think about why this matters, how this affects our present & how to apply these lessons to our future.
Tomorrow is April 1st, "April Fool's Day." As such, I have decided to run this piece in advance on on March 31st to encourage people to think for themselves about what our culture does to WOMEN.
Here in the Houston area, it seems that the weather has gotten the advance Memorandum, with wild temperature fluctuations & while there haven't yet been any "Mother Nature" analogies, I fully well expect to begin any day now (hopefully not.)
Finding the Insurance Industry to be a very frustrating, infuriating means of gainful support, I've tried for YEARS to get back into Advertising.
Income Inequality for WOMEN is THE PRIMARY REASON for doing what I do on this Web Page.
When Society thinks it's OK to declare war on women in a Sexist, Misogynistic way, it should go without saying that WOMEN need the protection of the Equal Rights Amendment.
Discrimination towards Women is NOT OK.
