White House continues its war on women
Recently, the White House flaunted a picture on its Flickr account page showing President Barack Obama in the oval office with his top advisers. But, take a look at the photo. Do you notice anything? No, they’re not all white – there is a little bit of diversity. Look more closely.
Wait for it…
There is not one woman in the photo.
Obama, whose campaign claimed that Mitt Romney was anti-woman, cannot bring himself to find one qualified woman for his team.
According to the Free Beacon:
The Obama White House in 2011 paid female staffers 18 percent less than their male colleagues:
- According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).
The Obama reelection campaign, though better, was also a bastion of inequality:
- The Obama reelection campaign’s female employees earned an average of $6,872 during that period, compared with an average of $7,235 for male employees. That is a difference of $363, or 5.3 percent.
The annualized pay difference is more than $2,100 per year.
Why isn’t the mainstream media – whose anchors seem to be such champions for women – reporting this and forcing the president to rectify the issue? How hypocritical it was to attack Romney, whose cabinet while Massachusetts governor was approximately one-half women, when Obama cannot even find one woman to advise him.
