Quote of the Day: The Fight for Equal Pay Goes On

Sen. Barbara Mikulski
"Put on your lipstick! Square your shoulders! Suit up and let's fight for a new American revolution where women are paid for equal work! Let's end wage discrimination in this century once and for all."

--Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) on the failure of the Senate to get the 60 votes necessary to create pay equality for women. Women are paid 70 percent of what men make for the same job in the U.S. and Republicans (all of them, including their women, voted against this bill) think that's OK.
