The U.S. Senate prepares to introduce Paycheck Fairness Act...again. It shouldn't be a surprise to anybody when it doesn't go anywhere.
We're in an election year - and a pretty nasty one, by all early indications - so GOP will continue to obstruct and drive wedges. They're engaged in an all-out assault against women and women's rights, of which Paycheck Fairness Act is a major piece. When women have economic parity, we're able to control our lives without being dependent on powerful (men) to determine what we can and can't do.
I'm overjoyed to see young women standing up for Equal Pay, as well as reproductive choice and abortion rights. Now, if we will all just commit to getting 10 women who didn't vote to the polls in November, the Paycheck Fairness Act can finally become law.
