Pope Francis Says the Gender Wage Gap Is a Scandal
“The Christian seed of radical equality between men and women must bring new fruits,” Pope Francis said on Wednesday. “We should support with decisiveness the right to equal pay for equal work. Why should it be taken for granted that women must earn less than men? The disparity is pure scandal.”

“Pope Francis: It’s ‘pure scandal’ that women earn less than men for the same work,” Abby Ohlheiser and Michelle Boorstein, Washington Post

“If the Pope wants women’s equality, he must support reproductive rights,” Jessica Valenti, The Guardian
