Melinda Gates: Let's not take 208 years to achieve equality for women in America

It'll take 208 years for women to work more OT hours, be as willing to relocate to get a better paying job, massively increase their likelihood of dying on the job, be drafted into frontline infantry, start working multiple jobs when the income from one doesn't cut it, be able to lift and carry 200 lbs, etc, etc... come on ladies, no one's standing in your way but you. Being forced to compete with male athletes is a good start.

It's not enough to simply quote raw data. It is also deceptive, at best, to present it only in a way that supports your ideology. You have to look at why the differences exist. You also need to support women who are perfectly happy simply being mothers and homemakers, not that there's anything simple about it. Guilting women into participating in the workforce on top of having and raising children doesn't help anyone.

There’s a countdown every year...how long would it take for a similarly qualified white woman to make the same as a similarly qualified white man...

It’s around August.

Change it to a Latina, September.

Change it to a Black woman, October.

It’s 2019, we can’t even figure out equal pay for equal work.

Sad.

Equal work?
Got some examples?

'Equal' is a huge assumption.

Harvard Study: "Gender Wage Gap" Explained Entirely by Work Choices of Men and Women | John Phelan

From the article:

"What do you think of when you hear the phrase 'gender pay gap'? Perhaps you think of a man and woman who work exactly the same job at exactly the same place, but he gets paid more than she does. This sort of discrimination has been illegal in the United States since the passage of the Equal Pay Act in 1963."
I remember when the office clerks were threatening to unionize.
Most were women and a few were men ... men were distributed along the curve same as women.
They thought they should be paid the same as the Package Drivers. LOL
Moved the jobs to Central America eventually or they were eliminated by technology.

From the article:

Although women now earn college and graduate degrees at higher rates than men, they remain concentrated in certain majors and, early in their careers, they are often channeled into less lucrative jobs. Men are 70% more likely to be executives than women their same age.
In 2018, there were more Fortune 500 CEOs named James than there were women.

I see you're still upset that I pointed out the fact that your whore grandmothers passed gonorrhea to your parents during childbirth and that's why they were blind.

Sorry my friend. I'll pray for them though.

HPV vaccine, just saying.

My dad probably got his jaw cancer as an adult from chowing box when he was a teen.

It was rough when the cancer set in.

Multiple surgeries...he survived.

If only the HPV vaccine had been around in the '60's.

We can literally cure cancer with a vaccine.

Get the vaccine, give your kids the vaccine.

Science, bitches.
