What You're Really Saying When You Support Gender Equality, But Not Feminism. The idea that feminism put women on a pedastool over men is just not true. People need to educate themselves on what feminism really is before judging it.
In accordance with the White House, full-time working women earn 77% of what their male counterparts earn. Ultimately, this implies that women must work an additional 3 months in order to earn what men did in the previous year. This pin acts as a visual display for the multiple ways in which women are discriminated against for simply gender. In a world where women are beginning to rely less on men for financial prospects, we should strive towards pay equity. This step is claims making.
WHITE women work 59 days for free. Black women, 94 days Hispanic women 117 days. Put another way, it's as if after July 21 (Hispanic women) August 21 (Black women) or October 16 (white women) don't receive a paycheck. Annually.
