Bill Foster Statement on Women’s Equality Day

Congressional candidate Bill Foster released the following statement on the 92nd anniversary of national women’s suffrage:

“Today we honor the women and men who fought tirelessly to secure the right to vote for America’s women,” said Bill Foster. “We have come a long way but there is still a lot of work to do to ensure that women are treated fairly. In Illinois, women currently only make 76 cents on the dollar compared with men who do the same work. I was proud to vote for the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act, both important steps in the fight against wage discrimination. Middle class families need to be our first priority, and that means making sure that equal work merits equal pay.”
