I got to chime in here, too. 

Accepting the "status quo" that women get paid less because "that's the way things are" or that we "should mind our own biz" is borders on mental "laziness".  Why should I accept injustice just because its too hard for me to change things?  Mentality like that will keep you always in last place in the race of life....

I want to finish first.

Excuses. Excuses.
Back in the day they used to say, "The man has a family to support. That's why he's paid more."
But, with the advent of divorce, that sweet little lie no longer held up.
My favorite is the egalitarian lie: "It's knowledge, skills and ability that we look to. Nothing else."
Another lie that ran out of steam when experienced women continued to fall under par for male salaries.
Ah white males...the brand that just won't quit fuc*ing the masses.
Heart attacks to you all.

anyone who gets a paycheck should want to be paid on par with colleagues doing the same work 

It should be natural to do what you can to make that happen

Theres no house note, car note, tax, phone/light bill discount for being a woman or black... there shouldn't be an automatic deduction in pay for being black or a woman
