Equal Pay Day

Dear sisters and daughters of the USA--

April 8 is Equal Pay for Women day.  

I just took action with the National Organization for Women (NOW) and Democracy for America. We need to tell Congress to close the gender wage gap by passing the Paycheck Fairness!

It's time to let Congress know that we'll remember in November if they don't support women's rights.

You might want to consider signing the petition on the other end of this link:

On the other hand, you might want to forget it.

What good did it do to fight for ten year to pass the Equal Rights Amendment to the US Constitution?  Not much.  

The Senate passed the ERA, the House passed it, and 35 states ratified it.  But it takes 38 states to ratify an amendment to the Constitution.

So I have no idea whether signing this petition is worth 10 seconds of your time or not.

Whatever.  Think about it.
