About the Dick Clique
While gender inequality is nothing new having existed in the workplace for decades, it is more prevalent now than ever before with statistics showing that women on average earn 80% less than men. Let us not be fooled. The inequality affects much more than just our pay. It includes how we as women are treated, the recognition we receive, the respect we garner and the opportunity for career advancement. With the prevalence of the #meetoo movement our voices are being heard on a nationwide scale like never before. The mainstream media have finally joined the conversation. But is that enough? I say no. It’s not.

I’m from New Orleans originally. It is my favorite city in the world.
