Immediately after the Paycheck Fairness Act failed to get enough votes to avoid a filibuster in the Senate today, Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), clearly fed up, gave a rousing speech aimed at women across the country who are equaly angry at being under-paid and treated as unequal citizens.

Taking the floor as soon as the measure failed, Mikulski, who reintroduced the bill last week, shouted, “We’re going to foment our own revolution”:

I say to the women out there in America, let’s keep this fight going. Put on your lipstick, square your shoulders, suit up, and let’s fight for a new American revolution where women are paid equal pay for equal work, and let’s end wage discrimination in this century once and for all.

I personally don’t wear lipstick, but I’m down for a revolution.
