There are a lot of people that don't believe in the wage gap. I hear arguments about it all the time so I'm really glad that BuzzFeed came up with this video. For anyone who doesn't understand a wage gap without this video, it should be easier now.

This video makes me so happy, I wish I could meet this lady in person. Her whole performance is a comedic slap in the face to the patriarchy. *For anyone who doesn't care for her intro statements, the actual dancing begins at 1:50.

When this video started, I didn't like it that much but after around 15 seconds of singing, I realized I love it. It's witty and it's real and every woman who says they aren't a feminist should watch it because this video is undeniable.

Field Trip

Google's new app, Field Trip, allows users to to discover information about notable females and their achievements in certain locations as they walk around or search for information. The creators felt that history too often glossed over women's achievements and wanted to stymie this by disseminating mobile information.

Josephine Calavetta

In the1930s, Josephine Calavetta was working for Grant Photo Corporation. She managed a photo studio in New York and did very well as a colorist. She basically photoshopped before computers. However, she was denied a location transfer because the studio could only be “operated by a man.” Calavetta faced serious discrimination based on her sex, but went on at age 92 to graduate Valedictorian from her assisted living home. She passed away in 2012
