            It was clear to me after reading the comments on my previous blog post that I needed to further develop points on topics that I briefly talked about in my last post. Two commentors told me that it would be a good idea to read the articles that they posted in their comments so that I could further develop my points about the two issues. The two issues that the commentors want me to further develop my point on are Intersectionality and the mommy track. To do this I will use the articles that they provided for me to look at, as well as, one or two that I found myself.

                     Gender inequality, specifically the issue of the wage gap has been a widely disputed and sometimes even unnoticed topic for as long as I can even remember. The disputes aren't even about whether or not there is even a wage gap because everybody knows there is. According to,"No, The Gender Pay Gap Isn't A Myth--And Here's Why" by Catherine Pearson, "'Few experts dispute that there is a wage gap, but differences in the life choices of men and women - such as women tending to leave the workforce when they have children - make it difficult to make comparisons.
