The Daily Word in Inequality, Abortion Rights and Helium

The Daily Word

A bird's eye view of inequality and a few words on perspective by the photographer who snapped the powerful images.

On Monday the Supreme Court struck down on abortion clinic restrictions in Texas, stating that the strict requirements “constitute an undue burden on [a woman's] constitutional right to [seek an abortion].”

The ruling could have a ripple effect on many other Republican-run states with strict abortion laws.

Evolution favors simplicity, which is one of many reasons why it doesn't make sense for our ape cousins to evolve into humans. Take it from the experts; I only minored in anthropology.

Scientists discovered more than a trillion liters of helium beneath Tanzania, a relieving find after some researchers feared an impending helium shortage. Scientists rely on the gas for MRI scanners which I guess is more important than high-pitched birthday party entertainment.

Boba already exists, Starbucks.

Harrison Ford for president.

Cookie Crusaders

We may not be able to eat our way to equality, but maybe this Saturday, Sept. 19, we can eat delicious cookies until we purge internalized misogyny while learning about the huge inequality of the gender pay gap?

Rude Boy Cookies (115 Harvard SE) and FemCity Abq (the local chapter of Femfessionals), which assists women with every stage of career development, are hosting a Cookie Crusader fundraiser from 5pm to 8pm. This event draws attention to the 23% disparity in pay between men and women by donating 23% of all proceeds to FemCity Abq to sponsor new members.

Across the board, women annually make 23% less than their male coworkers. That disparity goes up to a 36% wage gap for black women, and soars even further to a 46% wage gap for hispanic women. FemCity members will be present to answer all questions about the group.

This event will fill your appetite to deconstruct the patriarchy through specialized cookies! (But actually, don't eat till you puke, please).
