Who runs the world? Girls, girls. White men. You probably know that. But this infographic really drives it home.

This infographic is from  the ”Diversity Gap” study series created by Lee & Low Books, an independent children’s book publisher specializing in diversity. They previously released infographics on the diversity gap in the Emmy Awards, the Tony Awards and the children’s book industry.

What is responsible for the lack of diversity of our government? Little things like… gerrymandering, discriminatory voter ID laws, low voter turnout rates, campaign finance rules that favor corporations and the wealthy, as well racism and sexism, are some of the major driving forces behind the government’s lack of diversity.
