Topic 2 DQ 1 Read the journal articles about various inequalities that exist in America. Pick one of the areas (such as wage inequality, gender pay, racial gaps, etc.). What are some historical solutions to the area of inequality that you selected? Explain if modern day solutions have been more effective in alleviating the problem or not. The inequality I've chosen to highlight is gender pay disparities. There is a pay gap between women and men. A solution to this problem is the Equal Pay Act of 1963. This established that regardless of gender it is unlawful to pay a individual more or less on the basis of sex. Although this is a long standing policy there is still a wage gap. The times up movement is testament of this ongoing issue in America.
