Wisconsin’s Repeal of Equal Pay Rights Adds to Battles for Women

On Thursday, with little fanfare, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker signed a bill repealing the state’s 2009 Equal Pay Enforcement Act, which allowed victims of workplace discrimination to seek damages in state courts. In doing so, he demonstrated that our political battles over women’s rights aren’t just about sex and reproduction— they extend to every aspect of women’s lives.

What war on women, amirite?!

This is an important point – reproductive rights are only one battle in a massive war.
