But the wage gap varies significantly by race, according to an analysis from the research organization AAUW. While white women experienced that 78 percent figure, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women made 65 percent of what white men made in 2013, African-American women made 64 percent, American Indian and Alaska Native women made 59 percent, and Hispanic women made just 54 percent. Asian-American women are the only group doing better than white women, making 90 percent of white men’s earnings.

Woah, staggering.

    Although I really dislike scientific gender designations, this is one of the most comprehensive graphics on fertilization I’ve seen.

    I wonder how quickly the world would change if all straight women suddenly refused to sleep with straight men who used gendered slurs, made or laughed at rape and domestic abuse jokes, sex-shamed, and mocked women’s bodies.  I wonder.

    imagine if mike brown’s family had considered deleting their son’s social media before the media got to it

    that would turn heads

    "what are they trying to hide?"

    "a teenager with no internet profile? seems fishy"

    "did he keep a low profile because he was in a gang?"

    but no one thinks its weird that darren wilson’s internet EVERYTHING seems to have magically vanished
