Madinah Wilson Posted over 1 year ago Equal pay for both genders? As woman we should negotiate for our salary. When the time comes to sit at the table we need to be confident and prove our worth, through the hard work and commitment that we have provided thus far without considering future possibilities of pregnancy. Men now can also take leave when they have children and should hold an equal responsibility when it comes to taking care of them. So we as women need to decide what it is we really want and make the sacrifice.
