Until the 1980s, corporate CEOs were paid, on average, 30 times what their typical worker was paid. Since then, CEO pay has skyrocketed to 280 times the pay of a typical worker; in big companies, to 354 times.

Meanwhile, over the same thirty-year time span the median American worker has seen no pay increase

Calling All Nerds

Hey Tumblr friends! I need your help!

I’m undertaking a new writing project, and I’m researching badass ladies of history. Heroes, Villains, Inventors, Thinkers, Warriors, Poets, Scholars, Rapscallions, Clerics, Leaders and Outlaws. Whatever ladies you got that shook things up and made a difference! Extra points if there is some historical insight into this person’s personal life and/or inner character and philosophy! No historical personage is too obscure OR too well-known, I just want your favorites, regardless of whether you think I am or am not already aware of them!

Cheers, and thanks friends!

A lot of characters are called strong female protagonists when it’s kind of a cipher, and it doesn’t mean what it should mean. Like, a female character will be called a strong female protagonist for crying only a handful of times as opposed to the entire story, when Indiana Jones is not called a strong male protagonist for bullwhipping Nazis and shooting guns at ghosts and stuff. So [our webcomic Strong Female Protagonist] started as an exercise in making a character strong in every sense of the word that we could find, where she’s strong in a literary sense — or so we hope — strong in the sense of conviction and heroism and morality, and then physically, superhumanly strong.
