As you may know, the United States is not the only country with a gender wage gap. This ad from Sweden claims that the quickest way for a woman to earn as much as a man is to be a man.
Sweden may be "one of the most progressive in the world," but they're still dealing with what BeAMan.se calls "structural discrimination in the labor market."
Annelie Nordström, chairwoman of Kommunal, Sweden's biggest union, as made over as a man to protest unequal salaries between men and women in the country. It's all a stunt for International Women's Day this Saturday. Over at the website, BeAMan.se, women can also connect to a Facebook app and become men themselves through some photo manipulation.
Pretty powerful stunt, even if it's just an excuse to make you hear — really hear and understand — the words: "Every day she works for free after 4 o'clock, while he gets paid until five." UGH. Where is a table-flipping gif when you need one?
