50% more likely to go to a political rally
2.2 times more likely to advise others on current events and politics
108% more likely to be registered to vote
I remixed this slide from a presentation by Tumblr’s Liba Rubenstein (libawr).

Lakota girl, ca.1875

This isn’t a Lakota girl she’s a Filipina mestiza de sangley

Bah! way to erase the woman’s identity. Check your sources, gdi. *glares*

And her portrait is one of the most famous old portraits and recognizable among many Pilipin@s. The photo, which is called Mujer de la clase rica, was indeed taken in 1875, but not of a Lakota girl but a Filipina/Chinese mestiza by Dutch photographer Francisco van Camp who was well known during the 19th century for his refined portraits in the Philippines.
The fact this post got so many notes with misinformation, poor research, and thus erasing her ethnic identity saddens me.

i’ve noticed that a lot of people confuse “respects women” with “respects women they consider respectable”.
