Single women only earn 56 cents to every dollar a married man makes!
Newsweek‘s and Time‘s coverage of the Sarah Palin VP campaign contains singlist rhetoric disparaging both childfree single women and single moms! (Even though single women form a key voting demographic that could sway the election.)
Bella DePaulo, a social psychologist specializing in singlism (and conveniently for us, also an expert on the social psychology of deceiving and detecting deceit) writes a restrained yet scathing post about these topics here on the Huffington Post. Check it out! And then—GO VOTE!
PS. Australians, go vote in Australia and be happy that Palin’s not on the docket. = )
