Got 20 cents?  Those two dimes represent the difference between what men and women make on EVERY dollar. 

True: women make, on average, 80 cents for every dollar men make.  The disparity is a hot topic of discussion on this day (April 10), Equal Pay Day

Oregon has some news to contribute to the day: an equal pay law passed by the legislature that goes into effect at the beginning of next year.  Trish Garner lobbied for its passage; she and Regina Ayars, both of AAUW, join us.
