Can we just talk about something for one second?

Can we just talk about something for a sec?

Can someone tell me WHY women are still making 80 cents for every dollar a man makes?

I know what you're thinking. "Get off your rant, Amanda. There are real reasons for this," you say.

Studies have shown that women, (women in 2013, not 1960!) are still making less than men. Numerous studies have controlled for all possible variables, and are STILL finding this to be true.

But women are more likely to stay home with kids, obviously they'll be making less!

Even when studies control for that. 

Well, women are more likely to work part-time, thus bringing home a smaller salary.

Even if you control for that. 

But women are more likely to be in lower paying occupations, like administration or teaching!

Still less, even when you control for those factors. 

Women are more likely to be in non-technical fields, which pay less than engineering or scientific jobs!

Even if you control for that. 


Seriously, America. Equal pay for equal work? I think it's time to step into this century. Please.
