So I was reading through Pundit mom and I came across a list of Senators that voted against the Lily Ledbetter Act that provides Fair Pay for women.
I scrolled down the list (all of them were Republican Men) and what name do I come across other than Sen John McCain of Arizona.
I find this interesting given that he chose a woman to be his running mate. And looking at the 3rd debate where he and Obama were discussing the ban on partial birth abortions. And he claimed that the typical argument was for *airquote with hands* "Women's health concerns".
Forget interesting, it's rather disturbing. We've had a huge historical moment with the election of our first African American President, but women of all races and cultures are still falling far behind. What can we do about this? Obama is set to sign the bill into law, so that's a good first step.
So I'm going to start with posting the list of Senator's names. If any of these are your senators, I encourage you to call and write letters to tell them that we want equal rights for women. We have to do this for our daughters' futures. And I also encourage you to reprint this list on your blogs if you have them.
