Dear White Women

Jun 5, 2019

As women, it’s important for us to advocate for other women, but it’s difficult for us to do that if we’re unaware of other women’s experiences. According to statistics only 62% of Americans even believe that there is a pay gap between men and women, but data shows there is.
