Women’s Media Center Statement on Paycheck Fairness Act’s Failure in Senate
November 17, 2010
The Women's Media Center is saddened that the Paycheck Fairness Act failed in the Senate today due to the lack of votes necessary to move forward with the legislation. If passed, the act would strengthen the Equal Pay Act in an attempt to remedy the wage gap between men and women workers. The Women's Media Center supports equality in pay for women in media, and all women workers, and will continue to raise awareness about a persistent gap in earnings that directly contributes to gender inequality.
