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 and author of The Motherhood Manifesto and The F-Word: Feminism in Jeopardy.
