  • The '77 percent' statistical fraud on gender pay gap issue

  • Report: Men paid more than women on Capitol Hill staffs

    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.

  • Female veterans highlight military experience in quest for Congress
