So Batgirl couldn’t convince you this weekend? Well, it’s still not too late. Congress is voting today on the Paycheck Fairness act, and a last minute call may be all your congress person needs to be convinced that voting yes is the right thing to do.
And why is it the right thing to do?
Because women still make 23 cents less on the dollar than male counterparts providing the exact same work.
Because women of color make even less, with Black women earning just 62 cents per dollar and Hispanic women only 53.
Because thanks to the “mancession” many families are relying solely on women as breadwinners, and unequal pay hurts them all.
And because frankly, it’s just plain fair!
