But the wage gap varies significantly by race, according to an analysis from the research organization AAUW. While white women experienced that 78 percent figure, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women made 65 percent of what white men made in 2013, African-American women made 64 percent, American Indian and Alaska Native women made 59 percent, and Hispanic women made just 54 percent. Asian-American women are the only group doing better than white women, making 90 percent of white men’s earnings.

Woah, staggering.

In a day in age where a white dude receives nearly 60 grand for eating a potato salad, it is especially important to foster a sense of community by donating and promoting to activist projects that go perpetually unsupported. 
We hope that the tumblr community can help change this by supporting a project created by a woman of color, a queer woman, and a queer woman of color. 
With that being said, the Denton, Texas Femme Fest Organizers/the creator of Muchacha Fanzine are excited to announce the biggest project we have ever taken part in. We have teamed up and have worked endlessly this summer to share this dream with you… FUNDRAISING TO OPEN UP THE NONPROFIT INDEPENDENT FEMINIST BOOKSTORE & COMMUNITY CENTER IN DENTON, TEXAS, SOUTHERN WOMAN’S BOOKSTORE!!! The bookstore would include diverse books & zines with an emphasis on women, POC & LGBTQ writers, artistic events (open mics, musical concerts, film screenings, art shows), consciousness-raising workshops, and more! 
We believe in the power of representation. A feminist bookstore and community center would help a young woman see her own story in print. It would help a person of color learn about their history and see a name like theirs on the shelves. It would help an LGBTQ individual locate themselves within a story, when they are often rendered invisible.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP OUR DREAM BECOME REALITY: 
Donate through our GoFundMe! (Each donation matters despite the amount. Seriously if every tumblr feminist donated $5, a radical activist bookstore and cultural community center would be able to exist and thrive and positively impact thousands of people in the South where a space like this is desperately needed)

Stay tuned for the Third Annual Denton, Texas Femme Fest Nov 22, location TBA. Femme Fest this year will be benefiting Southern Woman’s Bookstore. We are currently looking for bands and artists to join our Southern Grrrl Revolution.
In a world where women, POC, LGBTQ projects are time and time again unsupported, please please please consider being involved in the preservation of our knowledge, activism and art!!!
Tumblr Community, I double dare you to support small town grrrl activism and reblog this. Let’s shoot for one million reblogs.

❝ I was born a girl, but that doesn’t matter because I was also born six pounds eleven ounces and that changed too. ❞
—Riley (via petitedino)

The U.S. Department of Justice has a message for police in Ferguson who would wear “I am Darren Wilson” bracelets: don’t.

On Friday, the DOJ sent a letter to Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson that characterized the bracelets as problematic. The letter was a response to a picture that surfaced earlier this week, which apparently showed an officer wearing a bracelet displaying the words “I am Darren Wilson.”

According to the letter, the bracelets “reinforce the very ‘us versus them’ mentality that many residents of Ferguson believe exists.” They also are “exacerbating an already tense atmosphere between law enforcement and residents in Ferguson,” the letter added.

The letter — which was signed by Deputy Chief Christy Lopez — asks for confirmation that Jackson will prohibit his officers, as well as officers from other departments who come to his city, from wearing the bracelets.

“I am Darren Wilson” has been a popular refrainamong his supporters for weeks.

Demonstrators in Ferguson in August.

Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson killed Michael Brown on Aug. 9. Almost immediately, protesters began displaying “I am Michael Brown” signs. Supporters of Wilson — who is on leave while a grand jury reviews his actions — responded with “I am Darren Wilson” paraphernalia.

In a news conference Wednesday, Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson characterized the “I am Darren Wilson” bracelets as an “individual statement” by police officers, rather than a “statement of law enforcement.”

Friday’s DOJ letter states that despite the need for freedom of expression, police departments should “closely regulate” officers’ appearance.

Police officers in Ferguson also need to wear legible name tags, the DOJ said in the letter.


In addition the the bracelets, the letter touches allegations that police in Ferguson have covered their name tags with black tape. Protesters in Ferguson have complained since August that police haven’t been wearing name tags, and the letter states that “not wearing, or obscuring, name plates violates” Ferguson’s own police policies.

The letter requests that the department “end the practice immediately.”
