Inequality of Gender: A Motherhood Statement?

I smile when I read inequality in terms of real income doesn’t exist.  Women all over the world take on a huge burden of responsibility yet their work is valued less.  Wages, income, salaries are based on what traditional white men have decided is of value to them, it has a propertied context.  It has nothing to do with the real wealth generated through those aspects unseen that develop emotional intelligence, that care for others, that show kindness, that exist in the non-paid sector that so many took for granted.  Yet it was of the highest value.  The raising of children in my view is the highest value to society.  If we leave them in childcare centres, if we neglect their wellbeing the entire society pays a high price.

let’s Advance Australia Fair in the public interest.
