Income disparities among men and women in the 99%

    There’s a very real income gap between men and women in our country.  When I first did a drawing on this subject, women earned 55 cents for every dollar men earned.  Women now earn 77 cents for every dollar men make, so that’s progress. As long as we’re discussing income inequality, though, the looming and accelerating gap is between the top 1 percent of the income spectrum and the rest of us. There is no progress to report on that one.
