Things like this make me scream silently in my head. One of my favourite
daily procrastination materials professional blogs recently posted an example of how we continue to treat men as default humans and women as women. Very important point, undermined by a very silly mistake in the maths. Fellow sociologists, I love your work, but would you get your act together, please.
$1 man’s wage = $0.81 woman’s wage is the same as $1.23 man’s wage = $1 woman’s wage. 😮 Not $1.19 (in fact, it’s a fascinating number, 1.23456790123…, but that’s beside the point).
