According to some women’s rights campaigners, this was particularly apparent when they took their shirts off in support of the Women’s March in Washington DC on Saturday.
For their part, women’s groups, such as Pussy Riot, the Feminist Collective and a local feminist blog, called them a “slut-shaming outfit” in a post on their website.
Other women told the Guardian that they felt like they had failed their feminist cause.
A new study by the University of Chicago’s Department of Urban and Regional Science offers new insight on the relationship between race, intelligence, religion and class in the United States. The researchers examined data gathered from the U.S. Census and the American Community Survey to find where Americans of all faiths live, and how they have adjusted to a changing economy.
The researchers found that black Protestants have adjusted the least to the economic changes and that American Catholics have maintained their higher income status in most years they have been in the same place.
“One of the ways that we can get a sense of whether the black Protestant population in the United States today has adjusted to new economic realities is to look at how we measure their life expectancy,” said John Cline, a professor in the Department of Urban and Regional Science at the University of Chicago. “We can look at the rates of certain mortality characteristics that indicate whether people are living a long life, and black Protestants have generally been living a long life.”
“Even where we would expect that there might be some adjustment, the fact that black Protestants are living so long without really experiencing the changes is really surprising,” he said.
The study, “Intersecting Class,” co-authored by Cline, James Thompson, associate professor of sociology, and Michael Z. Levin of the University of Chicago, is published by the Journal of Urban Economics.
Among the findings in the study:
1. Black Protestants in every country have held high income in the past. From 1785 to the latest year for which statistics are available, the average income of white American Protestants has dropped by almost 30 percent, while black Protestants’ average income has risen by about 15 percent. For Latinos and whites, the gains have been even more noticeable. In 2005, the average income of blacks was $40,000, while that of whites in that year was $51,000 (figure 1). In the most recent year for which figures are available (latest year without data) it has been $43,000
