Since man began keeping written records some 6000 years ago, records were kept by men, used by men, written for men, and kept secret from women. Men did business and practiced universal truths, laws, principles, and virtues until eventually those practices became habitual. While men operated businesses outside the home, women, operated inside the home.
The 1970s — when women began to take work outside of the home and women’s lib was on the scene — it seemed that this action was likely at least part of the source of the massive breakdown of western marriage. Divorce rates 40 years later for first marriages are at 50% and much higher for 2nd and 3rd marriages. Why is this important?
With marriages and families splitting apart, mature adult male role models were also disappearing! Now male adolescents had no mature male role models to emulate! Just 75 years ago, families ran businesses together, communities spent time on projects – so there were plenty of adult men around. Today most young men don’t even have a father as a role model, let alone uncles, community members, church members, etc. What that means is that when men hit mid life and their own fear of dying, they revert back to adolescent behavior, and mature women woke up one day married for a long time … to a teen-aged boy!
Even with the lack of male business role models, the habitual use of business tools articulated for centuries is now inherent and automatic for men, with or without role models, somewhat like the 100th Monkey Effect. They have had the advantage in the business world without even knowing it.
Women are now deeply steeped in the business world – they are not just now entering it. Yet they come to this world without the business skills and tools that are already automatic for men. Women do have emotional intelligence skills from their centuries managing home and family, but those are not the business skills required to ‘get ahead’ in the business world and generate unimagined wealth.
Women don’t just want to earn the $.23 for each dollar that men do. They want more! The challenge is that because nearly all great works were written by men and for men, those works may not resonate with women. More and more men are going home to manage family as more women are out in the business world so it is imperative women learn these skills, or remain behind men in pay earned, even for performing the same work.
The translation of these male oriented documented works — my legacy and my life’s work — into a woman’s point of view goes a long way in having women gain these skills with alacrity, and collapse and EXCEED the pay gap in very short order. Men who learn these business skills – or distinguish them intentionally – have a bigger advantage than women with those skills.
