Closing the gender wage gap must be treated as a human rights priority. It is more than just pay equity. It is about access to quality education, eliminating gender-based streaming, access to good jobs, community supports for workers such as child care and elder care, and an effective system to eliminate gender discrimination and sexual harassment. And, of course, it is about undervaluing (and therefore underpaying) women for the work that they do. Remedying the gap requires action on many fronts including a robust pay equity regime with supports for compliance and active enforcement.
