"Today, women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but the average working woman earns only 77 percent of what the average working man makes. But unless women and men both say this is unacceptable, things will not change."

Interestingly, Beyoncé called on men to help the cause for equality. She asked men to "demand that their wives, daughters, mothers, and sisters earn more."

She added that we also need to "teach our boys the rules of equality and respect, so that as they grow up, gender equality becomes a natural way of life."
