The average woman made 80 cents for every dollar earned by a white man -- and the gap isn't shrinking.

Equal Pay Day is a reminder of the $840 billion women won't earn this year.

Andy Puzder heads Carl’s Jr., maker of burgers and soft-porn TV commercials. His job is to protect women's rights at work.

Whether Clinton has been treated unfairly or has received improper scrutiny is something voters will have to decide for themselves in November. But the statements made about her by Trump and other political rivals would clearly be judged as sexist in most courtrooms that I've set foot in and that should give us pause.

The remedies restored by the fix are only partially restored for two reasons. First, the "fix" expressly cuts back workers

While Trump's flaunting of divorces, affairs, and other indiscretions may indicate a certain hubris and lack of regard for public opinion, none of it counts as abuse for everyday American women. The real abuse will come from his policy ideas if he's elected.

North Carolina's governor Pat McCrory has repeatedly used a form of political dishonesty that lacks a well-recognized label. Lacking such a label, this tactic often goes unnoticed and unaddressed. To remedy this, I suggest a precise and well-earned label: a "McCrory."

If Republicans really cared about the EEOC's "mission not accomplished" record due to budget starvation, it would increase funding for investigation and prosecution of giant corporations getting fat off our tax dollars -- while women working for them still slave away for 79 cents on the dollar.

It's easy to ridicule North Carolina's new anti-LGBT law, but it's actually very disturbing. The idea that Tar Heel politicians felt such an urgent need to start policing bathrooms that they held an emergency session inspires mockery, not fear.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is premised on sex-based preferences, assumptions, expectations, stereotypes

Preventive services like mammograms and birth control are provided without deductibles or co-pays under Obamacare. If the system is dismantled, get ready to pay up or lose these benefits altogether.

Too often when Albuquerque, New Mexico, makes headlines, it's bad news -- a police department under scrutiny by the Justice Department, or a seemingly unsolvable homeless problem. But recently the city made news for something good -- especially good for women.
Queer Voices
Such an opinion by Chief Justice Roberts would not only strengthen the decision but put into the Supreme Court's toolbox the importance of viewing discrimination against someone on the basis of her sexual orientation as simple sex discrimination. This would help bring "heightened scrutiny" into consideration in future gay-rights cases.

The legal battle between Ellen Pao and the legendary Silicon Valley Venture Capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers has sparked a media frenzy over the prevalence of gender discrimination in California's technology entrepreneurship gold rush.

For it's first 80 years, females (including Rometty who showed up in pink) were denied the green jacket but allowed on the grounds during the tourney to "entertain clients." That sent a powerful message about women's true place -- not only in the business hierarchy, but society in general.
