Not all of the prime time DNC coverage included this powerful speech by women's rights pioneer, Lilly Ledbetter. She pointed out that women still earn 77 cents for every dollar earned by men, "Those pennies add up to real money. It's real money for the little things like being able to take your kids to the movies and for the big things like sending them to college. It's paying your rent this month and paying the mortgage in the future. It's having savings for the bill you didn't expect and savings for the dignified retirement you've earned."

It's a short speech and really worth viewing.
