“Female job applicants with children are 44 percent less likely to be hired for a job than are childless women with similar qualifications. Fathers, by contrast, are 19 percent MORE likely to be hired than are comparably qualified men without children.”

"Getting a Job: Is there a Motherhood Penalty?" American Journal of Sociology, 2007 (via checkprivilege)

Right, because mothers needing to work to provide for their children is seen as a burden, a liability, and makes the woman seem like she doesn’t really care about her career - as she is the one assumed to be caretaker if her child gets sick at school, or has an even, etc…but a man with children is desirable because he ~cares~ or something and needs to provide for his family.

shibbbyyy:

People have a knack of really over simplifying feminism like “feminism: the radical notion that women are people” or “feminism is literally just believing in equality” like… no its not its so much more complex than that ask any dingus if they think women and men should be equal they’ll probably say yeah but their actions and thoughts probably majorly contradict that so quit acting like anyones a feminist if they vaguely believe women are ok humans
