Remember this ad? 1974 Equal Pay PSA with Batgirl!

Remember this ad from 1974? It's an Equal Pay PSA with Batgirl! 

Imagine this - In 2016 we're STILL fighting to get equal pay for women. Back in 1974, the Federal Department of Labor asked the original Batman cast to reprise their roles for a Public Service Announcement about the Federal Equal Pay Act. The Act, which requires businesses to pay men and women the same amount of money for the same job, was passed ten years earlier but hadn't been heavily enforced.

Burt Ward returned as Robin, Yvonne Craig returned as Batgirl, and Dick Gautier filled Adam West's shoes to portray Batman. The ad features Batman and Robin tied up, with only Batgirl to save them. However, before she helps her friends, she demands that she get paid the same as Robin because they do the same job.

Here's the video:


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
