Congress: Pass the Paycheck Fairness Act

In what marks their latest anti-woman position, Senate Republicans are prepared to vote against the Paycheck Fairness Act. This would provide a much-needed update to the Equal Pay Act of 1963 to make it fit our modern times.
At its core, this law enforces actions against employers who discriminate against an employee's compensation based on gender and it strengthens penalties for equal pay violations.
Sens. Maria Cantwell, Ben Cardin, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bob Menendez and Debbie Stabenow have joined together to demand immediate passage.
Sign our petition calling on Senate Republicans to join us in passing the Paycheck Fairness Act without delay.
