From Credo, previously known as Working Assets:

Dear Friend,

Last year, the Senate failed to get the 60 votes necessary to force an up-or-down vote on the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which would mandate that women receive equal pay for equal work. Now, with a new session of Congress in place, the House is ready to take up the fight again.

With President-elect Obama soon to take office, we now have a real chance to pass this legislation that could do so much for so many American women. There will be a battle in the Senate, and the best way to come out of the gate strong is for the bill to pass by an overwhelming majority in the House.

Women across America are counting on Congress - I just took action to tell my member of Congress to support the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. I hope you will, too.

Please have a look and take action.

Thanks!

Hi friends,

You may have seen in my journal a while back a mention of www.maketheconnection.org, a campaign to raise awareness about cervical cancer. They ran out of the bracelet kits they were offering.

They're back, with a twist.

Now the campaign is "make the commitment" www.makethecommitment.org, and the offer is slightly changed. You make a commitment to talk to your doctor about reducing your risk of cervical cancer. They donate $1 to the cause, send you a bracelet, and enter you in a contest to get a necklace too.

Please consider participating. It's a reasonably nice bracelet, and the cause is a good one. Spreading the word to your female friends might be nice too.

Our struggle today is not to have a female Einstein get appointed as an assistant professor. It is for a woman schlemiel to get as quickly promoted as a male schlemiel.
