    A beautiful message and lovely and vibrant poem, @Donna-Luisa Eversley. While we have definitely made strides in many areas there are still road blocks, aren't there? I continually deal with the label of "being a woman" in the work place and fighting for equal pay. It's an exhausting battle, but one that I have to fight. Not just for me but for those that come after me, and for those who haven't found their voice yet. It's disheartening to watch the inequality that reverberates throughout our society, and sometimes within the confines of our own environment. If you are a strong, intelligent woman who is passionate and not afraid to speak her mind, you risk being labeled as a bitch. And for a while, I let the labels and judgement hold me back from being me. It's freeing to walk the walk though and I'm so glad I finally broke free from the "can't" handcuffs.

    What a great conversation you had with your daughter @Donna-Luisa Eversley. Believe me, the things you speak about now may not seem to be resonating with her but your words will. You walk the talk and that's what matters. Your poem sounded like something Maya Angelou would have written, I really like it. Very inspirational read.

    Thanks for this awesome buzz, DL. Put simply, sex-based discrimination against women and girls should never be tolerated -- period! Moreover, sex discrimination includes sexual harassment, pregnancy bias and gender-based wage discrimination (equal work for equal pay).
    Further, I would be remiss without mentioning the many other types of discrimination ranging from the workplace to every place, including (but not limited to): race, color, religion, national origin/ethnicity, age/looks, disability, genetic information/DNA, etc.

    It shouldn't be surprising that situations like this not only exist, but are perpetuated. Perception is 99 percent of most people's reality.
    How many guys have been suckered by an attractive barmaid who doesn't wear her rings? She flirts with them to earn a living. They're called tips.
    Is that wrong? Or is it living in reality?

    Here's an unasked for tip, Grace. Feel free to ignore it. Twitter has a "follow-me" web intent. It's just a link that will take a person to a screen where they can follow you with a single click. Yours is https://twitter.com/intent/follow?screen_name=gracekillelea

    You can use it in a post, an email, or anywhere else you can add a link. You can also connect it to an image.

    @Grace Killelea, great post, I can't believe that there are people giving that kind of advices nowadays...
    And totally agree, I don't want to work in a company that thinks that my engagement ring is more important that my talent.

    Welcome to beBee @Grace Killelea! This was an eye opening article! I've briefly worked in HR and the thought of evaluating a candidate based on a wedding ring sounds ludicrous. Suprised as well that this mentality exists for some in the workplace. Thanks for sharing!

    But should men have to remove the rings from their noses before getting hired?
    Brian McKenzie
    24/08/2016 #3 Brian McKenzie
    Just 2.7% odds of getting hired. Delicious. 8?/ I am going to have a drink and ponder the appropriate engagement ring for my spirit animal. PS - a pre-nup is nearly as patently worthless as the marriage certificate / license - neither has a legal binding status or precedence once lawyers and judges appear. Ask around.

    "When a man gives a woman an engagement ring, he buys the least expensive ring that he believes it will take to get her to agree to the proposal. " SAY WHAT?? What is this? A proposal or a contract negotiation?

    Maybe I'm no authority on the subject. I've been married twice. Or, does that MAKE me an authority? I mean, two women said, "Yes." Whatever.

    A man buys the most expensive ring he can afford. I have never heard of anyone doing anything else.

    On to the subject of this post. I guess it's possible that some people would be put off by a huge rock. Some may also be put off by a little one, or none at all. Let's just leave it at some people will be put off by (fill in just about anything here).

    I agree, @Grace Killelea, the whole idea is ludicrous. I may not have hired as many people as you, but I don't think I've ever hired, or not hired, someone based solely on their jewellery or lack thereof. The idea is laughable.

    Good grief, I am just amazed at some of the stuff that still occurs in the workplace Grace. This is very relevant, and a practice that simply needs to stop. I loved how you wrapped this up, as it speaks volumes. . . "In today’s talent wars, if you focus on the size of woman’s diamond and not the size of her talent, intellect, ability or potential - you deserve to lose." Right on! I hire for talent, I could care less about sex, race, religion, orientation, etc. It's all about the value a candidate brings to the table. Thanks for the post and bringing awareness to the issue.

    Hmmm, I do sometimes wonder what message my wedding "ring" sends, considering its a tattoo! Be well Grace, great post!

    #2 Fully agree. But what happens when a legal system encourages you to act against women? Can we get back from there? This article was written by a Pakistani woman, who managed to escape to the USA and now writes about women empowerment.
