100 years today since women won the right to vote.
100 years ago today since women aged 30 + and who were property owners, or married to property owners won the right to vote.
It wasn't until 10 years later in 1928 that all women aged 21 and over had the right to vote.
But thank you Leatash for starting this thread.
(and I wonder if you will be accused of being a feminazi for doing so?)
But we still have a long way to go equal pay the pension problem and equality in the workplace and thats for starters lets hope it doesn't take another 100 years.
Isn't it already illegal to pay women a lower rate for doing the same job as a man?
But.........there is also the issue of equal pay for work of equal value. ie not necessarily doing the same job but one that should be paid the same amount as a job being done by a man/men because although both jobs may be different the amount of skill, qualifications etc required to do both jobs are comparable.
Employers must pay men and women equally if they are doing 'like work', which iswork that's the same or broadly similar; or work that's of equal value (for example, in terms of effort, skill or other demands); or work that's rated as equivalent under ajob evaluation study.
