If Republicans really wanted to show women that they care about them ahead of the election in November, they failed miserably.

On Monday, Senate Republicans unanimously rejected the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would help narrow the pay gap between male and female workers. Women currently make 77 cents for every dollar a man makes.

A001You may never see as striking a campaign against domestic abuse than this.

Artist Saint Hoax‘s awareness campaign for domestic violence titled “Happy Never After.” has a harrowing tag line:

“When did he stop treating you like a princess?”

Similar to his first poster series “Princest Diaries,” which spotlit sexual abuse by family members, “Happy Never After” encourages those suffering at the hands of a violent or abusive spouse or family member to report their attackers.

“Disney princess are perceived as ideal females,” Hoax told HuffPost in an email. “They belong to a fairytale land where happy ever afters are bound to happen. But what happens after the happy ever after?”

The piece comes after Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was given light-touch treatment by the NFL after video emerged of him dragging his unconscious fiancee from an elevator after an alleged incident of domestic violence.  TMZ first published video of the incident at an Atlantic City casino back in February, but as only showed the aftermath – a woman being dragged unconscious from an elevator.

But when the footage from inside the elevator was posted by TMZ on Monday of last week, the full extent of the attack left people in shock and outrage, and Rice was finally indefinitely suspended.

The timing could not have been more perfect.  It’s time to bring these abusers to justice.

A community made up of American ex-pats deep in the South American hills of Chile – far away from America’s annoying taxes, healthcare mandate, and legal abortions – was supposed to be a Libertarian paradise of rugged individualism, instead it cost many of the people who bought into it almost everything and now is buried under lawsuits – a reminder that everything…
