A-Z sketches in verse: Ladies Can Lead
A Rhyming Replay on Equal Pay Day
Fret not, though a female may stand at the helm.
Her goal is to pilot, not just overwhelm.
She captains the ship with a confident hand,
Through waters unknown, though some misunderstand.
Her visage is soft, but her countenance firm,
Committed to carry the journey long-term.
Yet the helmswoman wonders, along with her crew,
When may she receive equal pay overdue?

NOTE: April 14, 2015 is Equal Pay Day in the US. This represents
the point on the calendar to which the average female reportedly must work into
the new year to match what her male counterparts may have earned in the
previous year. Currently, according to the
US Department of Labor, a woman earns approximately 78 cents for every
dollar a man earns in the same position.
