Who said that there wasn't a war on women? Earlier today, the US Senate voted 52-47 in favor of closing the gap of pay for women. For every dollar that a man makes on the job, a woman only makes 77 cents at the same profession.
Unfortunately, this bill was blocked because 60 yes votes were needed in order to avoid a filibuster. US Senate Republicans blocked this bill because this bill would have put an extra burden on the "job creators" throughout the nation. No, it would have righted a wrong that has languished in the private sector for centuries.
However, these consequences that happened today affect women because women still continue to vote Republicans into Congress.
