An Open Letter to Wal-Mart

Dear Future Judge and Jury of the Wal-Mart Case, We, as women, find it hard to believe that the Supreme Court dismissed the Duke v. Wal-Mart, Inc case.  Many women have been discriminated against, not just at Wal-Mart, but also at many other companies. Someone needs to take a stand and we feel that it … Continue reading

Pregnant Women getting FIRED!!!!

As I was browsing on the Internet for information regarding gender discrimination, I found this picture, which was just heartbreaking.  I find it so sad that women are getting fired for having kids.  Our society needs women to have kids but more importantly, be able to work and provide for their family. We see in … Continue reading
