Diagrams[edit]

Several of the diagrams are incorrectly devised. Chopped off scales do not belong in a serious article, so diagrams like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:US_womens_earnings_and_employment_by_industry_2009.png seriously harm the credibility of the article. This is not because the diagram actually shows incorrect data, but because it exaggerates the point to be made, at a quick glance they do not portray the data.

The risk is that readers who would otherwise have found the article informative and reasonable might view it a dubious and POV. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.208.240.230 (talk) 00:57, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
