Based on what’s in my inbox right now, people seem to be a little confused about this post I reblogged earlier, and added commentary to.
- 77 cents is not the average of all women’s pay. 77 cents is in fact what white women make to the dollar.
- Oddly enough, in my queue, I had this post, which posted right before I reblogged that Think Progress post.
- 77 cents = white women only
- White women should not be the default, but they often are referred to as “women” and much like in this Think Progress post, WoC, are an afterthought - and as shown, so are their pay gaps.
- White women should not be the default.
- Women should mean women. All women. Full-stop.
