Not really surprising, but also not really talked about.

Conversations about the pay gap should take into account one of our vocab terms from last week, 'intersectional diversity' and think about how women from different types of backgrounds may struggle against additional barriers to equal pay.

When we, as gender equality activists, demand equal pay it is not just for one siloed group of women, but all of them. 

The answer does not just lie with employers, of course. What we need is deep societal change, and although that will most likely take generations, we need to fight through those slow returns and keep the pressure on for the sake of the women (of all backgrounds) of the future.
