I Am Moving To Mozambique
Tonight we're hanging out in bed watching ESPN (read: one of us is propped upright with a laptop and one of us is staring intently at the television screen), and I came across an article which points out that women in Afghanistan earn $0.25 for each $1.00 that a man is paid.
Are you just as bothered by that figure as I am? If you are, then you'll be blown away by where I discovered The United States ranks.
For every dollar a man earns, a woman in his country makes:
$0.16 Saudi Arabia
$0.25 Libyan Arab Jamahiriya
$0.77 The United States
I also feel compelled to mention that right at this very moment I'm watching five of the world's greatest golfers on television, all of whom I'll be seeing at The Players Championship PGA Golf Tournament this weekend. Do you think they bring home around the same pay as their LPGA counterparts?
I'm thinking of asking Tiger on Sunday.
