International Pay Day or in good Portuguese, how much do you earn? – Paula Cordeiro


The 18th of September, International Pay Day, is dedicated to questioning and showing the impact that wage differences between men and women have on economic development and inequality. And the differences persist.

If you are a woman, you certainly earn less than the man, sitting next to you, with the same level of responsibility and the same tasks. There are exceptions but the statistics do not fail: equal work does not always mean equal pay. A few days ago, actress Jennifer Lawrence spoke about this very issue, saying that “it doesn’t matter how much I do” (“it doesn’t matter how much I do“) because, he continued, the difference will persist as a matter of gender. I felt in his words a kind of resignation, based on the assumption that, when asked about the reason for the salary difference, employers always say there is no gender inequality, without being able to explain why women have a lower salary. Therefore, it is important to ask how much you earn, but even more so, if you are satisfied with what you earn. Because I am not.
