How the trailblazing female journalist got her start at speaking truth to power. In 1885.
And what she wrote about then sadly still holds true today, in many workplaces. Example (speaking about her own experience)
A girl was engaged to fill a position that had always been occupied by men, who, for the same, received $2.00 a day. Her employer stated that he never had anyone in the same position that was as accurate, speedy and gave the same satisfaction; however, as she was “just a girl” he gave her $5.00 a week. Some call this equality.
Disgraceful. If you’re an employer, of course you (should) pay equal for a job, regardless of gender (or other such factors). Anything else is just plain wrong.
