Last night, the Democratic Women's Caucus hosted a Pay Equity Dance Party in Helena. A fundraiser for the women's caucus, it also was structured (through the cover charge) to illustrate the disparity of unequal pay for equal work by women. Gals paid $4 cover, and men $6. It was a GREAT party; apparently, given any opportunity to blow off some steam, we legislative gals will shake our groove things and sing along to the 'best' of the 80s and 90s. Some of our male counterparts danced, too (nice moves, Mike Phillips!) We were shaking our tailfeathers!
From this past week:
Jill Cohenour was fouled in the House vs. Senate basketball game by Ryan Zinke, and here is an impressive bruise from the event. She made one of her two free throws from the hit. Take that, Zinke!
