As a 37-year-old professional woman, building a business while working full time with 2 young children, you would think that I would be outraged by the 18.4% gender pay gap branded round the UK media or the 16.2% here in Australia; but to be quite honest, I don’t give a damn! “Say what? How dare you speak against your fellow females’ rights...what is wrong with you?” You might hear some cry; but the fact is men and women are different...there is no denying it; it is a scientific fact (see any biology textbook). So why are we so interested in how much each of the sexes get paid? What are we trying to achieve?

Also maybe preferring to have a life, and/or unwilling to sacrifice personal values.
