For anyone out there who thinks feminism is no longer a necessary cause— I’m talking to you, person who called it a “vanity project”— let’s look at some of the unfortunate consequences of gender-based discrimination, made available by an enlightening Tumblr account titled 100 Percent Men. Dedicated to raising awareness and calling out institutional “boys clubs,” 100 Percent Men features photo submissions of company boards, scholarship committees, legislators, and artists’ groups composed entirely of men. With not a woman in sight, 100 Percent Men serves as a stark visual representation of why we still need feminism. Are each of these groups inherently sexist? Probably not. But do they indicate the the ways in which our educational and professional cultures continue exclude women? Sadly, yes. Check it out here, and let us know what you think in the comments.
