PETERSBURG, Fla. (Mar. 5, 2018) – Almost 47 percent of U.S. workers are women, according to the U.S. Dept. of Labor. That means that almost half of the working population is underpaid.
According to a 2016 report by the National Partnership for Women and Families, women nationwide make 80 cents to their male counterpart’s dollar.
In, “SuperWomen Do IT Less…Or a Helluva Lot Better!, A Millenium Guide to Having It All: Children, a Career and a Loving Relationship,” Ray offers a guidebook for empowering all women striving to succeed in their personal and business lives, while navigating through daily trials.
“In every industry, professional or clerk,” Ray said, “women face the challenges of a male-dominated society and a lack of support for women’s issues, such as maternity leave, equal pay, job equality and childcare, on all levels of business interaction.”
Ray has faced a number of challenges and obstacles throughout her professional career, because of her gender. She was the first woman in sales for Honeywell, Inc., worldwide, and led a path-breaking legal case in the State of New York, 1975 Human Rights Commission, when conciliation found discrimination based on her sex and age, and exclusion from earning an equal salary and equal opportunities.
“My goal is to empower all women to go after what they want,” Ray said, “while guiding them through the tough choices they face, between their family life and career. Every day, we must do IT all. We can find success in having IT all when we make the right choices – not for the company or another person – but for ourselves.”
