NEW DELHI (AP) — India's top court on Tuesday issued a landmark verdict recognizing transgender rights as human rights, saying people can identify themselves as a third gender on official documents. The Supreme Court directed the federal and state governments to include transgendered people...

President Obama has made it clear that the gender pay gap is at the top of his talking points heading into the months before the midterm elections, but his preferred solution isn't going anywhere, even as alternatives that might be viable go unexplored.

As the Senate rejected legislation last week aimed at ending wage discrimination among men and women in the workforce, Congressional staffers faced a similar, but smaller, wage gap of their own. In 2013, female staffers in congressional offices were paid 91 cents for every dollar that men made...
