Todos Hacemos Cual Es Necesario

28 06 2008

It is not necessary for all of us to have the same skin color – we have the same paychecks.
It is not necessary for all of us to use wheelchairs – we have the same roads to travel.
It is not necessary for all of us to wear the same clothes – we have the same spirit driving us.

Trapped in more than one prison, many women embrace only one struggle. Race, sex, age, class, ability, orientation – we must work against the odds to claim our own identity and provide visions of self and our community.

It is not enough to exercise the power to work outside the home – most of us have been working “outside the home” all along.

Now is a time when women have an equal presence in the workforce but not an equal paycheck. Rules, by design or neglect, enable men to hold jobs defined as more prestigious and therefore more lucrative. We must protect ourselves and our families by fighting against this kind of discrimination that strives to keep women “in their place” – or as they say in business, “at that pay level.”
