I am a feminist. Women are powerful, women are immovable, and women are strong. Why doesn’t the government recognize this? Inequality continues to persist in the United States and is considered a normal part of American living. It needs to be put to a stop.

I believe that males are not supreme over women. As a prime example, according to the American Association of University Women, females make 82% of what male peers earn (as part of a 2009 report by the Department of Education). This accounts for all jobs except bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing clerks. Also, among men and women who occupy the same occupation, females make 7% less than men. It is a huge shocker that in 2013, females are still not equal to men. As a female, I feel strongly for equality among males and females.
