Here’s a fun fact for you: In 2018, female-founded companies received just 2% of all VC funding. In the whole year. In fact, female-founded companies raised $10 billion less than Juul did alone. Juul! Of all companies!
(Cue the bros saying, It’s not my fault men founded better companies. Dude, please.)
Look at literally any (legitimate) study on wage parity and it’s clear that women’s work is just not as valued as men’s.
Of course, women of color, trans women, queer women, and gender non-conforming people also have higher barriers to access to education and resources and their earning potential is lower just based on their identity.
I’m sick of it.
