from the daily kos - article on student loan bubble. while the entire article is very upsetting, i couldn’t help but focus on this graph. the closest we’ve come to bridging the wage gap was in 1995. THAT WAS EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO YOU GUYS. and between 2000 and 2003 men’s wages shot up, but women’s wages only had a slight peak, and men’s wages have had a higher rate of recovery since 2004 than women’s.

ask me again why we still need feminism.
