"But there is one way in this country in which all men are created equal-there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any college president. That institution, gentlemen, is a court. It can be the Supreme Court of the United States or the humblest J.P. court in the land, or this honorable court which you serve. Our courts have their faults, as does any human institution, but in this country our courts are the great levelers, and in our courts all men are created equal."

Women working full-time, year round are typically paid only 84 cents for every dollar paid to men. The loss of 16 cents on the dollar adds up over a month, a year, and a lifetime. Based on this wage gap, women would lose nearly $400,000 over the course of a 40-year career.
