To the men who have told me that I’m overreacting and “it’s the 21st century women are equal now”
That 77 cents thing is only for white women… It’s even less for women of colour
Thanks for reminding us of that! ^
In the reverse
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
This is important. I wonder what the stats are in Australia?
Indigenous people earn so little on average thanks to apartheid that’s going on…and they’re not allowed to handle their own money
I feel like such a dick for doing this but some of these facts are plainly incorrect.
A lot of statistics including unicefs research on property division in the sub Saharan regions point out that at least 10% of property is owned by women. Not including communal property. Exact statistics are not readily available as it is hard to measure. Although this fact is false, it still shows that men own a lot more per capita than women. The extent of gender inequality is still crazy.
Illiteracy numbers among the world populace according to UNESCO are 1 on 5, two third of which are women. With a grand total of 3 billion women in the world the number comes to 33%.
20% of 7.17 = 1.4340 - All illiterates
66% of 1.4340 = 0.94644 - Number of illiterate women
Numbers in billions.
Literacy is an essential foundation for development and prosperity. Investment in literacy under women helps in development of countries.
According to numbers by the FBI in 2006, 94472 instances of rape occurred. Which leads to an easy math problem. 94472/365= 258.8
Less than half of the above suggested number.
To clarify, yes I am male and yes I identify as a feminist but no I do not see anything in supporting factually wrong statements. Although the numbers represented in the photoset above do not always reflect the correct numbers, they still do reflect gender equality among us, which in this day and age should become a thing of the past.
