Race, class, and gender in the public square

With permission of Jill Filipovic of Feministe! I am reposting her piece, A Story In Pictures. I stared at it for a long time trying to imagine how I could post about it and ultimately decided that it says everything it needs to say all on its own and I just wanted to share it with readers here. 

A Story In Pictures (Feministe! January 29, 2009)

Two of the most important women’s-rights-related bill-signings in the past few years.

The Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003:
Bush signs abortion ban

And the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009:
Obama signs Fair Pay Act

 

I think the pictures say more than I can. Thanks Jill!
