Happy Holidays, women! Here is a gift for you!

According to a Facebook post from the National Women's Law Center, us working women never have to say we "only make 78 cents on the dollar" ever again. Now we can puff out our chests and say, "I am now making 79 cents on the dollar!" That's right, the wage gape has closed by exactly one cent. 

We were going to prep a celebratory shopping slideshow called "Things You Can Buy With Your Shiny New Penny Raise," but we couldn't find any nothing for sale.
