It has been normalized that women are paid less than men in all industries and globally; even in South Africa where equality is apparently prioritized. We enjoy an extremely critical conversation with Genderlinks’ Kubi Rama about how this varying pay gap which has no convincing basis is actually a detriment to all of society, continuing the adverse power relations which we often continue to internalize. Rama advocates that it is time to stop talking and start acting; suggesting that it is necessary to now have some class action to end this discrimination.
