You can't have a discussion about equality for women without discussing the wage gap. According to the Census Bureau, on average, women earned just 80 cents to a man's dollar last year, but that figure only tells part of the story.

MomsRising CEO Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner shares her take on where women stand on the path to equality, and what else needs to be done. She notes that there is still a lot of work to do, but lays out a few recent wins that women have had in the fight for wage equity.

Rowe-Finkbeiner also discusses the importance of Frances McDormand's acceptance speech at the Oscar's - specifically her mention of the inclusion rider. She says that the inclusion rider could have a significant impact on the entertainment industry and beyond.
