<<I can't argue with you about the "equality" in sports. The rules of golf have existed for a long time, and just because we as a gender don't hit as hard as men doesn't mean the playing field needs to be levelled for us. I think that stuff is bogus and I'm annoyed by it on behalf of women who are not insecure about our musculature.

Thank you for a generous comment.

<<But..my brain is not inferior. I am skilled at my job, and I work many more hours than my male coworkers who have children, and for most of my career I was in fact paid less money for more, and better quality, work, due simply to my gender. Would it be fair to pay black people less than white people because a higher percentage of blacks are unemployed?

It's common for employers to cheapen wage rates for anyone they can. The first defence of employees against that tendency is hard bargaining for higher wages with an existing employer and a willingness to shop around for better offers from other employers.

Did you use those methods? And if so, did they help produce an equitable salary rate for you?
