Women Aren’t Equal to Men

The feminist movement has made gigantic strides over the years—but nearly a century since women were given the right to vote, the sad fact of the matter is: 

1. Women in the U.S. working full- and part-time make 84% of what men earn 

2. Women make 16% less money than their male counterparts

3. Women make up nearly 51% of the U.S. population–yet only 20% of the U.S. Congress is comprised of women

4. 15.5% of women live in poverty 

5. Women  report 37% of the stories in print, and on the internet, they write 42% of the news

6. Women on average comprise about 30% of the workforce at tech companies 

7. 70% of women worldwide experience a form of domestic violence at least once in their life

8. 11% of women age 65 and older live below the poverty line
