Equal Pay – Laws of Two Nations

Laws of Two Nations - Equal Pay Bills

Republican Senators have introduced a watered down, toothless bill designed to address the problem of pay equity. S. 875, a six page bill, is deceptively entitled the "Workplace Advancement Act."

Religious Freedom Restoration Act – Freedom For Whom?

Separation of Church and State

  I have always been concerned with what I have considered my rights and privileges as both a woman and a United States citizen.

Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary

  I am coming upon my one year anniversary with UniteWomen.org and have been reflecting on what has happened for me in that year.  It started at work when I ran across a news blurb about Paul Ryan’s fight to grant zygotes personhood rights under the United States Constitution.  I snorted out loud at my desk.  How incredibly ridiculous!  As a women’s studies minor in college, I had re...
