During his most recent State of the Union Address, President Obama stated that women only make 77 cents to every dollar that men earn. American Enterprise Institute scholar Christina Hoff Sommers reveals that this is a “massively discredited factoid.” When we take into account various factors such as differences in occupation, job tenure, and hours worked per week, the gender income gap basically evaporates. The claim that women make 23% less pay for the same work is an extremely misleading, but politically convenient, statistic.
Manipulatively lying to woman for political advantage sure sounds like a real War on (the intelligence of) Women. We at BarbWire call it like we see it.
