Did you know 75% of the world’s working hours are worked by women? And yet only 10% of the world’s income is earned by women. ONLY TEN PERCENT!!! That means men are working 25% of the world’s working hours and taking home 90% of the world’s pay packet.
Furthermore, the more education a woman has, the greater the disparity in her pay. In the U.S., women in professional specialty occupations were found to earn just 72.7% of what men in the same position earned, and women in upper level executive, administrative and managerial occupations earned even less at 72.3%.
As if that wasn’t enough, 50% of the world’s food is produced by women and yet only 1% of the world’s land is owned by women. Yeah, every time you eat food, 50% of it is produced by women while men own 99% of the land it was produced on.
