Marie Claire Hosts Women’s Lunch

Tory Burch, Katie Couric, and more women honored on anniversary of Equal Pay Act.

Marie Clare honored fashion deisgner Tory Burch, Katie Couric Kirsten Gilibrand, and Sarah Jessica Parker on the 50th anniversary Monday of the Equal Pay Act at the Women Taking the Lead lunch. "I always joke that when I got into television news during a time when 'harass' was one word, not two," Couric said. Gilibrand reminded the crowd about still, 50 years later, women still make just 77 cents for every dollar that men make, saying "the key to growing the economy, the key to achieving a thriving middle class, the key for every family in this country to achieve the American dream is women."
