    When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

    • Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
    • Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
    • Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

    Intersectionality matters.

    I will keep reblogging this to point out that disabled people, including men, make 22 cents on the dollar. Mostly because it is legal to pay us below minimum wage, but whatevs.

    1,200 aboriginal Canadian women have gone missing over the past 30 years. Hashtag asks #AmINext?

    On Aug. 17, Winnipeg police pulled the body of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine out of the Red River near Alexander Docks.

    The scope of the tragedy prompted Holly Jarret of Hamilton, Ont. — cousin to Loretta Saunders, an indigenous woman who was murdered in February at age 26 — to launch the #AmINext hashtag earlier this month.

    So, what’s being done about it? | Follow micdotcom

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking.  So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?  

There is only one reason a cop would resist having a bodycam, and it’s the same reason they try to scare you away from filming them and it’s the same reason they’d tape over their badges and it’s the same reason racists love the Anon feature and it’s the same reason the KKK wears hoods.

    Ferguson residents return for another day of protesting to find that overnight the police had ripped up their signs and threw them in the dumpster.

    TRIGGER WARNING

    This is a Scottish anti-rape PSA that is a direct response to blaming a rape victim for dressing like a slut. What do you think? Is it effective?

    Never have I seen such an effective video in my life… and it’s only 30 seconds long. Definitely, 100% watch and reblog this.

    Nobody asks to be raped. Ever.

    Well done Scotland

    THIS IS FUCKING KFDNVBGIOEFNHVLO

    This is perfect.

    fuckining 1000000/100. perfect
