Put on your lipstick ladies and fight!

So we have a few news items to get excited about from this new political regime. First the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay act will be signed by the President today (great name for legislation, almost as good as Loving v. Virginia). Whitehouse.gov explains the bill here.

Hillary Clinton's election campaign has now morphed into Nolimits.org. It is hard to tell what they will get themselves up to, but I'll do my best to keep you posted. In the meantime some tasty nuggets from what they have posted so far on the site. First Senator Barbara Mikulski from my home state, Maryland on the Fair Pay Act:

Change in the federal law books means change in women’s checkbooks. We need to pass the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. It's time for a new American revolution - we need to put on our lipstick, square our shoulders and fight together!


Gotta love Senator Mikulski!

And also a great story from New Hampshire which not has the first state senate with a majority of women.

I was going to post about Lily Ledbetter, but you beat me to it! :-) Very exciting. Also, I'll have to check out No Limits. Certainly an interesting concept...
