Will you pay or will I go now?

A psychological study recording salaries of 12,000 people over the past 20 years has found that men who hold traditional views get paid more than £5,000 extra than the modern man. Yes, the Journal of Applied Psychology findings imply what we have all suspected at some point: “The Man” still wants us women at home chained to the kitchen sink surrounded by screaming children.

But if you’re more of a Candace Bushnell than a Martha Stewart, then don’t be too disheartened. Women who believe in equal rights at work get paid slightly more. But only slightly – clearly, we still have a long way to go.

But where next? Do we just sit and hope things will change? Do we get extreme and suffragette our bosses arses? I don’t think the results mirror the state of society.

Divorce is no longer taboo. We have the lowest divorce rates but we also have the lowest marriage rates too. So many mothers are left holding the baby now. Whilst their men go off with other women to start afresh. Women need more pay. We can’t rely on the hunter-gatherer anymore.
