I was a Teenage Feminist

Sigh, I love you Senate Democrats, I really do

But it’s really frustrating to see all this talk about pay equality and the wage gap, and almost no talk about how much race plays into it. 

Let’s look at some statistics: 

White Women make 77 cents on the White Man’s Dollar 
Black Women make 62 cents on the White Man’s Dollar
Hispanic Women make 54 cents on the White Man’s Dollar

There is obviously a gender problem, but there is a race problem too. Sexism and racism aren’t mutually exclusive. If we want to end the wage gap, we need to talk about both.
