The Diversification of History: New Victors Telling New Stories

The Diversification of History: New Victors Telling New Stories
In 1970, women rarely appeared as historians. They showed up even more rarely as subjects for historians: of the 117 books reviewed, only one had a woman’s name in the title, and none of the titles included the words “women,” “gender,” or “family.” Men’s names appeared in about one-third of the titles. In the 43 years since, the history profession has changed dramatically, leading to new avenues of historical exploration.

Fundraising Gap Between Women and Men Gets Wider

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women earn 81 percent of what men do. Their wealth—assets like homes and savings minus debt—is half men’s, when neither are living with partners or over age 64. As the CBS article points out, women make up 17 percent of Congress and run only 18 of the Fortune 500 companies (that’s 3.6 percent). The higher you look on the ladder of financial well-being and power, the greater the inequality gets.
So as billionaires provide more of the money in politics, it stands to reason that the proportion of dollars with women behind them will shrink. The Center for Responsive Politics just provides evidence to support the logic. A similar breakdown of which donors are white, black, or Latino, would surely find the white/black and white/Latino wealth gaps likewise reflected in political giving.
