Mills High School Welcomes Congresswoman Speier and Phyllis Gould for Women's Equality Day




Congresswoman Speier and “Rosie the Riveter” to Discuss Equal Pay with High School Students on Women’s Equality Day

San Mateo, CA - Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco/San Mateo counties) and Phyllis Gould, a 94-year-old Word War II defense worker better known as a Rosie the Riveter, will visit two of our local high schools on Women’s Equality Day on August 26, 2016 to talk about equal pay for equal work. Speier and Gould will visit Mercy High School in Burlingame and Mills High School in Millbrae.


“I am thrilled that Phyllis will join me in inspiring these young high school students to fight for equality for themselves and future generations,” Speier said. “Ironically, the Rosies received the same pay as men during World War II. Today, women make only 79 cents to every dollar a man makes. For African American women and Latinas, the disparity is even worse. Add to that the fact that women are often charged higher prices for consumer products and services; an unacceptable practice I call the pink tax that I’m working to eliminate. It is time for us to level the playing field.”


Congress designated August 26 as Women’s Equality Day in 1971 to commemorate the passage of the 19thAmendment, which gave women the right to vote in 1920. Speier introduced H.R. 5686, the Pink Tax Repeal Act, in July. The bill would end gender-based discrimination in the pricing of goods and services. Rep. Speier has also sponsored H.J. Res. 51, a resolution to remove the deadline, so that three more states can ratify the equal rights amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Common Core State Standards

Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school. Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace. The California Department of Education helps schools make sure that all students are meeting the standards. Please click on the links below for more information about the standards. You can also visit the California Department of Education website to read more about the standards and the CCSS-related activities taking place in California.
