Chamber to women: get out of the office and make me a sandwich

On the 90th anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment, which allows for equal voting rights for women, the Chamber of Commerce decided to take a moment to let the Internet know they’re still peeved by all these “equal rights” shenanigans.

In a blog post simply entitled “Equality, Suffrage and a Fetish for Money,” Chamber blogger Brad Peck characterized women’s fight for pay equity as nothing more than a “fetish for money,” and said women complaining about their pay should focus instead on “choosing the right partner at home.”

Note to the Chamber of Commerce: open mouth. Now insert foot.
