Suffragette City

Obama And His Good Ol BoysBarack Obama portrays himself as the champion of the people. Women, especially. Judging by this Flickr photo, however, Obama believes in women’s suffer-age.

If anything, it solidifies the comparisons to Lincoln; since women were seen and not heard in his time, too.

But, War on Women! Or something.

The White House’s Flickr account recently released a photo of President Barack Obama and his top advisers. The complete absence of women in the image is another reminder that females are underrepresented in Obama’s staff.

Additionally, the president still pays his female employees significantly less than their male counterparts.

The Obama White House in 2011 paid female staffers 18 percent less than their male colleagues. The Obama reelection campaign, though better, was also a bastion of inequality. The annualized pay difference is more than $2,100 per year.

Apparently the administration is also conducting a war on blacks and Hispanics, because there is a whole lotta white going on in that photo.
