Reaction to Closing the Pay Gap

After reading the article on closing the pay gap between men and women, I can’t help but support Obama even more. The article (http://www.voanews.com/english/news/usa/US-Women-Cant-Close-the-Pay-Gap-117530324.html) has some great new stats and revelations  about women today. What I take away from the article is that women need to negotiate their pay wages to increase more often like men do. If they become aggressive about  raising their salary then they will see a change. Any other thoughts about the Pay Wage Gap can be seen in my previous blog about it.

  1. Is there still a need for feminism? Can women not close the gap because they’re too timid (not asking for raises) alone, or are there other reasons as well? How does business still manage to pay women less in the 21st century?
