IWF’s “Woman of Valor” ignores women

The Independent Women’s Forum (those gals we love to hate) is holding a gala dinner tonight in honor of Secretary of Labor, Elaine L. Chao, recipient of the organization’s Woman of Valor Award.
Now I’m not so familiar with Chao’s career, but I do know what’s happened under her watch.
As of July 2005, the Department of Labor will no longer be reporting on women workers. Valor-iffic!
Considering the award comes from an organization that argues the wage gap doesn’t exist, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised.
