From Fox News Latino,

Pope Francis has added his voice to the feminist anthem of equal pay for equal work, saying it’s “scandalous” that women earn less than men for doing the same job.

Francis also lambasted the attitude of some who blame the crisis in families on women getting out of the house to work. He says such attitudes are a form of “machismo” that shows how men “want to dominate women.”


Francis says husband and wife must be complementary: “We should support with decisiveness the right to equal pay for equal work. Why is it a given that women must earn less than men?”

Good to see him making a stand. After all if there is one job with complete equality of the sexes its that of being Pope!
