Holly Butcher, a 27 year old woman from Australia, recently died of a rare form of cancer that affects the bones. Before she passed away, she wrote an open letter on her Facebook page to her friends, family and anyone who would listen, about her insights as to what really matters in life as she approached her own death.

  I hear a lot of arguments as to why there is still a pay gap between men and women – main one is always that women get paid less because they hold lower paid jobs, whereas men dominate senior positions, and the main reason for that is because many women are still their children’s primary carers.
