Women's Equality Day

Today (August 26) is Womens Equality Day...91 years ago women got the right to vote. And, for the most part, vote we do...Yet for some reason, we are not equal--Women still earn substantially less then men (even in the same jobs)and that translates into less social security/pensions/retirement incomes.
Women do not even make up 20% of the House (16.7%) or Senate (17%)--we are ranked 70th (see; in state legislatures women make up 23.6%.
Women's voices are still not equally represented in op/eds in Newspapers and Magazines, on television, in films....
Yes, we have made some strides--but NOT ENOUGH.
