Women are the majority in America.
Stop calling issues essential to our survival #identitypolitics.
We are paid 3/4--or less--than men are for the same work.
We are 80% of the minimum wage workers.
We are the majority of the working class & the working poor.

Single mothers and women over 65 are the poorest people in America.
So when you talk about "economic justice" and the #FightFor15 you're talking about WOMEN--not the white guy Trumpers & Berners the MSM keeps writing about.

The claim of #identitypolitics is meant to shut down discourse on #ReproJustice--but nothing contributes more to women's economic inequality than being forced to have children before she's finished school or is financially ready.
