|Help spread the word about equal pay for women.|
Just moments ago, the Paycheck Fairness Act failed to get the 60 votes needed to move forward in the Senate. Fifty-two Senators voted to allow it to proceed, while 47 opposed it.
For the thousands of you who sent emails, made calls and met with your Members of Congress on this very important bill, this is a huge disappointment. We thank you for standing with us, and we urge you to continue the fight.
In the wake of a disappointing vote, help us get the message out about the importance of equal pay for women by sharing this video:
Fifty years after President Kennedy signed the Equal Pay Act, we are still trying to fulfill the promise of equal pay for women. And we are not giving up. Not when the average woman loses $10,784 in wages every year. The stakes right now are just too high for women and their families.
Thanks again for standing with us in support of the Paycheck Fairness Act.
