From the article:
Her point was that progress has ground to a near halt. Women hold less
than 18% of the seats in Congress and 25% in the state legislature;
women compose less than 3% of the heads of Fortune 1000 companies, 16%
of the members of the Boards of Directors of Fortune 500 companies; and,
15% of top executives and 8% of top earners. Few women make partner at
top law firms and a “vanishingly small number of law firms have women as
managing partners”; among new physicians, “women earned almost $17,000 a
year less than their male counterparts”; and, “shockingly… the pay gap
between men and women increased almost fivefold during the ten year
period from 1999-2008.” Not to mention the stunning point historian
Judith Bennett has made of how the medieval woman worker’s wages, while
“certainly not [woman’s] modern counterpart,” “nevertheless haunt our
modern ones: 71 per cent in 1363… 75 percent in 2002.”
This is all part and parcel of the clear conservative/queer backlash against feminist gains made particularly in the late 60's and 70's.
