The Wage Gap and White Privilege

I’m very tired of hearing that women only make 77 cents on the male’s dollar. It’s not a correct statistic. It should read: White women only make 77 cents on the white man’s dollar. 

That’s the real statistic.

Not all women are white. WOMEN don’t make 77 cents on the dollar, WHITE WOMEN do.

It’s important to remember.

Because every time we repeat that 77 number with no mention of race, we are erasing all women who are not white. 

Black women make 69 cents on the white man’s dollar. 
Hispanic women make 59 cents on the white man’s dollar.

Those women matter. Those women are women.

Women who should be included in feminism, who should be included in our movement.  

So don’t erase them.
