HERE, ANYWHERE (2009 - ongoing)
The map of Hungary is speckled with capsules of time. During the political transformation twenty years ago, as the country experienced change it simply forgot about certain places – streets, blocks of flats, vacant sites and whole districts became self-defined enclosures, where today a certain out-dated, awkward, longed-to-be-forgotten Eastern Europeanness still lingers…

This is fucked up
if you couldn’t SEE how fucked up this is, let me put this into even more perspective for you.
a male with no high school education still makes more than a female with 9th-12th grade education (no diploma).
a male who is a high school graduate still makes more than a female with an associate’s degree.
a male with a bachelor’s degree only makes about ~$2000 less than a female with a fucking doctorate’s degree.
tell me again why feminism isn’t important.
I am personally offended to the highest degree
I feel like we need more detail in this information. Are they comparing people who do similar jobs? Or just people who have degrees? I have a bachelors degree and I don’t make shit.
Yes these numbers are terrible, But it doesn’t give us a clear picture of anything. I feel like we need to be comparing a lot of things, not just level of schooling and average income. I mean really, you need more pertinent information to get a coherent idea of what the rift is between gender and income. Information like what side of the country they work on can change the game enirely. You could have two people, one male and one female who do the same work but live on opposite sides of the country and the lady might just happen to work somewhere where cost of living is cheaper, and therefore be paid less.
I guess what I’m saying is, you need more sets of numbers to really know what’s going on and to get a glimpse of the big picture.
Here is a great ted talk about data and what you can discover from it.
