The BBC salaries were announced today
and continued the argument for equal pay.
I don’t understand,
whether woman or man,
anyone could agree
that someone’s salary
shouldn’t be based on merit.
Are we worth less than men?
I don’t think that it’s true
but at times when it feels like
despite what you do
it can be very hard
to not start to believe
that maybe Adam really is worth more than Eve.
But despite the unfairness ingrained in our culture
and the way institutions all seem to be structured,
we must keep on believing we’re equal in worth
and we’re just as entitled to our place on Earth.
