This week's two-part PROMPT on gender (in)equality is:


Part 1: This week we have covered material on gender inequalities. Now, you'll explore and reflect on data on different variables associated with women, poverty, and (un)equal pay: gender, state, and race/ethnicity. To do this, visit the following webpages: 


https://nwlc.org/resources/women-and-poverty-state-state/  Click directly on the map to view data on different states. Collect data on women and poverty in California as compared with one other state of your choice.


https://nwlc.org/resources/wage-gap-state-state/  Click directly on the map to view data on different states. Simultaneously, use the dropdown menu to view data on different racial/ethnic groups. Collect data on how women of different racial groups are paid in California as compared with the same other state of your choice that you used for the other webpage above.


In your journal, very briefly summarize the information that you collect. Next, and more importantly, reflect on that information. What is notable about these data? How do these data link up together? How do these data link up with other data and/or materials that you have been processing in 157SL? Focus on interpreting these data and what they signify.  


Part 2: Choose one of the following sources and examine the proposed steps/actions to close the gender wage gap:

From the one source (above) that you selected, choose one of their suggested steps/actions that resonates with you, and that you personally feel you could get behind. In your journal, state your chosen action and why it is appealing to you. Reflect on how you could potentially support and/or work towards achieving this step/action.
