For the Uninitiated: Data Privilege

Data privilege is a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to particular persons or groups when presenting quantitative or qualitative data to support their interests.

A person experiencing data privilege is unlikely to be challenged  when then finish a sentence with the words “and all available evidence supports this position”.

Feminists experience quite a lot of data privilege. This is partly because in our society there is a lot of love, respect, and good will towards women in general and it is exceptionally easy for ‘feminists’ to exploit this.   After all half of society are women and there is a general understanding that women as a collective group have experienced injustices and challenges, both historical and contemporary.
