UPDATE: Women still not included in Obama White House meetings

White House War on Women Escalates

he 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:

According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).

The Obama reelection campaign, though better, was also a bastion of inequality:

The Obama reelection campaign’s female employees earned an average of $6,872 during that period, compared with an average of $7,235 for male employees. That is a difference of $363, or 5.3 percent.

The annualized pay difference is more than $2,100 per year.

It is unclear when Obama and the Democrats will call off the war on women.

There aren't many women in politics to begin with..... How can they hire females if there aren't any? and ones qualified for the job at that....

We have/had a female Sec of State, and a female Sec of Homeland Security.

And I call BS until I see the same statistics for Romney's campaign.

Bush didn't have a problem finding qualified women in politics. Clinton didn't either, but they were under the desk so not usually in pictures.

Who signed the Lily Ledbetter Act?? Sure woman, just as all other groups that are (non-white males) have a ways to go when it comes to equality. Will they post #'s for previous administrations??

I want to see these same statistics for Romney's campaign, or this argument is BS. You can't just post one side of the story.

I'd also like to see what percent of the active political female population is Dem vs Rep.

The article is clearly one sided and doesn't care to show the true story, but to spread negativity about Obama and the Dems.

I don't care who you are or what your opinions are, that is not proper reporting.

You haven't listed a SINGLE fact, come in here saying it's all wrong and wanting someone else to do your legwork. Go bring us the facts proving the article wrong. Until then.. it is what it is.

The article is half of a story. I'm not saying it IS wrong. It's bad, one sided reporting, is what it is. If it was TRUELY the case, they would use the Pro-Women statistics of the Romney campaign to back it up.

It's like stating a fact without any source to back it up.

This is a global epidemic in the media these days. Right / Left / whatever. How can anyone believe anything anymore?

99% of the viral crap posted in social media is completely fake and 99% of the world believes it to be fact.

The article is about the Obama administration, not the Romney campaign. It is fact, unless you can provide a rebuttal.

All you really have to do is click the link to view the reference material..

At least he didn't blame Bush.
Now Romney is the scapegoat.

He's not saying it isn't true...He's saying it not simply an "Obama" issue.

And Equal Pay only applies when the people in the position are equal (with the exception of their gender). Meaning: experience, education, training, certificates, etc etc etc. EPA claims are extremely difficult to prove.
