Kamala Harris released a plan to overhaul U.S. discrimination laws to ensure women and men are paid equally for the same work.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-kamala-harris-women-equal-pay-california-20190520-story.html 

Under the plan, companies would have to:
➡️Obtain a federal certification showing they are not underpaying women
➡️Show that any pay gaps between women and men are based on merit, performance or seniority
➡️Bar employers from asking job applicants about their salary history

Harris made her first public campaign stop in Los Angeles this weekend since she launched her run for president in January at a rally in Oakland. She released her detailed pay equity plan Monday morning.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-kamala-harris-president-election-20190121-story.html 

After months of debate over discrimination and sexual harassment in the workplace, women strongly favored Democrats in the November midterm election, and record numbers of women were swept into office.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-south-carolina-maternal-health-20190411-story.html
