Equal pay day rally takes place in South Bend

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- South Bend women took a stand for equal pay rights at work, Tuesday.

The rally at the St Joseph County courthouse was part of "Equal Pay Day."

Those who showed up say it is a growing problem.

They want to encourage women to get their local legislators and community leaders to join the fight for change.

The US Census Bureau says women in Indiana are paid about 73 cents for every dollar men earn. That is less than the national average of 77 cents.
