This Sunday, March 8, is International Women’s Day, a day aimed at celebrating women’s cultural, social and economic advancements. Yet, working women and mothers in this country continue to fall short of equality in many areas, including employment. Almost two out of three Americans who work in jobs that pay the minimum wage are women. Low-wage jobs like fast food, domestic work, childcare, and retail, are making working mothers choose between putting food on the table, taking their child to a doctor, or paying the utility bill.
