Wow. Just wow. That is just ridiculous. I can't believe after all this time, women and men are still not completely equal. It's sad that when a woman takes a "mans" job, the pay becomes lower, but if a man is doing a "woman's" job, the pay increases. It's also maddening.

Phyllis Schlafly: Still Wrong (and Mean) After All These Years

Phyllis Schlafly: Still Wrong (and Mean) After All These Years | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it
A recent column by Phyllis Schlafly—arguably nation’s, if not the world’s, most famous hater of the feminist movement—shows just how woefully out of touch she and the conservative spokeswomen who have followed her are today.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Schlafly said, “The best way to improve economic prospects for women is to improve job prospects for the men in their lives, even if that means increasing the so-called pay gap.”

URGENT: Call VA House Leaders - Stop Blocking the ERA

URGENT: Call VA House Leaders - Stop Blocking the ERA | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Del. Mark Cole's legislative aide said he is not planning on introducing the ERA legislation to be heard in the House committee effectively stopping progress on the ERA bill for Virginians and for our nation. This is unacceptable! We need to call and to keep calling Del. Cole and Speaker Howell. Ask them to allow a vote on the ERA bill HJ 12. The Virginia Senate bill passed with bi-partisan support 25-8. 

Tell your friends across this nation to call NOW!!!! One man has chosen to stop the path for economic stability for all women in the United States. Remind Delegate Cole and Speaker Howell that the number one issue for women is economic equality and women all across the nation are watching Virginia!

Women Can't have it all!

Mary Barra has a long road of challenges as the first female on the helm of mighty GM. 

If she managed to transform the GM culture, wages gap will be a secondary issue.

Lecture confronts gender pay inequality

Lecture confronts gender pay inequality | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

by EMILY HARTMAN, The Brown Daily Harold

 

Emily Martin, vice president and general counsel at the National Women’s Law Center, painted a grim picture of current gender pay inequalities Monday night to a small, female-dominated audience in Petteruti Lounge.

 

Regardless of age, race, education level, industry and other demographic factors, women earn less than men, Martin said. One year out of college, women earn about 80 percent as much as their male counterparts, and the gap only widens with time. New female doctors earn nearly $17,000 less than new male doctors, a disparity that has risen over the past decade. Even when controlling for all external factors, there is still a significant wage disparity, Martin said.
