Today is Equal Pay Day. According to a March 1st Washington Post article entitled "Women’s Pay was Starting to Catch up. Now Progress has Stopped", women in 2022 made 82% of men’s pay, barely up from 80% in 2002. To bridge this gap, today's women can seek out professions with higher pay and negotiate salaries. The good news going forward: The switch to online and hybrid employment is a boon for work/family balance, and today's job market is strong.

Happy National Pi Day, 3.14.

Honoring Women's History Month and National Reading Month which converge in March, I recommend reading the recent novel "Lessons in Chemistry," by Bonnie Garmus, which reminds us how far women have come since 1960. The novel is also funny, entertaining, and a page turner - everything we want in a book.

Columbia, William & Mary extend test-optional college admissions 03/03/2023

Education News: Columbia University and College of William and Mary recently dropped their requirements for the SAT or ACT exam indefinitely. During the past few years of temporarily suspending this requirement due to the Pandemic, they discovered that overall, students have been well prepared for college without having taken the exams. Other colleges and universities are expected to extend their test-optional stance as well. This is great news for students who are not great test takers, but excel in other important ways. It has already been several years since University of California schools and others have announced that they will not even consider SAT or ACT scores for admissions.

She joined the only Black female unit sent overseas in WWII. Now 102, she’s the oldest living member. 03/23/2022

Honoring Romay Johnson Davis

At age 102, Romay Johnson Davis is the oldest surviving member of the only Black female unit sent overseas in WWII. Today's Washington Post article says that she enlisted after all her brothers enlisted, and she is very proud of her service. A big part of her job was sorting backlogged mail, which was very important to those waiting to receive mail from their families and friends. "When the women returned home in late 1945 and early 1946, there were no awards or honors for them as they went on with their lives. It wasn’t until 2018 that a monument was dedicated at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., to honor the Black female battalion."

House Passes Bill to Bolster Protections for Women Facing Violence 03/10/2022

MAKING WOMEN'S HISTORY TODAY
Congress supports Women's History Month by re-enacting expired Violence Against Women Act, which President Biden wrote in 1994 when he was in the Senate. This funding is included in the $1.5 trillion spending package to fund the federal government through September.
"Introduced by a bipartisan group of senators, the measure would expand protections for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, provide more resources and training programs for law enforcement, fund r**e crisis centers, and broaden access to legal services for survivors, among other things." (New York Times 3/10/22)

Fairfax County residents, did you know that Lanier Middle School has been re-named to Katherine Johnson Middle School? For those of you who saw the movie "Hidden Figures," you know that Katherine Johnson was an African American mathematician who was instrumental in planning NASA rocket launches in the 1950's and 60's, most famously, John Glenn's orbit in 1962. Recently, several schools throughout the U.S. have been named after her.
