Call in to speak with the host
In 1971, at the behest of New York Rep. Bella Abzug, Congress designated August 26 "Women's Equality Day."
Forty years later, we've made some strides -- but as evidenced by the stalling of the Paycheck Fairness Act and the recent Wal-Mart ruling, we are still not equal. We still only make 77 cents to the dollar, make up just 17% of legislators in Congress and just 15.2% of the Fortune 500 corporate boards. And working women who are also mothers have additional hurdles to jump.
Cynematic and Donna Schwartz Mills and Julie Pippert welcome Kristen Rowe-Finkbeiner, co-founder of MomsRising.org and author of The Motherhood Manifesto and The F-Word: Feminism in Jeopardy.
It's good to talk.
