This quote suggests that while Clara Barton may occasionally volunteer her time and skills for free, if she is to be paid for her work, she believes she deserves compensation equal to what a man would receive.

She implies that if a job requires the same level of effort, responsibility and qualifications as a man’s role, then she is worth the same wage, not a lesser amount just because she is a woman.

The quote highlights Barton’s stance that her work had equal value to a man’s, and if remunerated at all for her contributions and labor, she deserved a salary commensurate with her male counterparts rather than a discounted rate based on her gender.
