Letter to the Editor, The News-Times

I commend The News-Times for making pay equity and wage gap front page issues. They certainly deserve it. Especially at this point in history where many households are headed by women, with or without a spouse, equity is of paramount importance.

The Permanent Commission on the Status of Women has been addressing this and other important issues for years. Under the leadership of Teresa Younger, we have pushed to make the public aware of this disparity and have fought for equity.

As this article reveals, there is still a long way to go.
