I don’t have anything against women’s rights, but the facts show that women now control 51 percent of all the wealth in the USA, according to a 2012 report from Business Insider. Business Insider also reported that women owned 60 percent of all stocks. According to DMN3, women over 50 have a combined net worth of $19 trillion. According to Forbes and other sites, about 58 percent of all college students were women. (Moreover, American women live 6.7 years longer than men, according to Scientific American.)
Is there an inequality in wages? Absolutely, but the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show that women who have never married have virtually no wage gap; they earn nearly 94 cents for every dollar a man makes. The 79-cent difference between the wages of men and women, which is a misleading figure based on median salaries between men and women, and claimed by former President Obama and other Democrats, has earned a couple of Pinocchios from the liberal Washington Post.
Having raised three daughters, I have an understandable bias for the ladies, but perhaps the truth needs to be a little more factual and less political.
