Here's so much of what is wrong with the world


(via Pharnygula)

Women STILL earn 25% less than men, for the same educational level. In fact, women earn the same as a male with about 2 years less education - and those figures are for women who work full-time year-round.

A man without a high school diploma earns the same as a woman with one.
A man with a high school diploma earns the same as a woman with an associate's degree.
A man with an associate's degree earns the same as a woman with a bachelor's degree.
A man with a bachelor's degree earns the same as a woman with a doctorate.

A man with a master's degree will earn, on average, more than a woman of any educational level.

That's not acceptable. There's no reason to pay someone a quarter less than they deserve, on account of them being female.

Sexism: makes the EGE very, very angry.

You're telling me? A person with an aerospace degree, gender aside, will earn at least 4 times as much in a year as someone with a journalism degree. So while you're sitting pretty in your space mansion, I'll likely be in a studio apartment, scraping by. (Though I do like studio-style apartments, that's not the point.)
