The White House Gender Pay Gap Is Worse Than The US Average
We must work to close the gender pay gap! "It shows the priority you place on the issues surrounding women and girls", she said. The disparity appears to be directly linked to the question of who works in the upper ranks of the White House staff.

"We deplore the attack on #Amarnath pilgrims & condemn all acts of terrorism. Our prayers are with the victims and those who were affected", she said.

Police said the attack began with gunmen unleashing a hail of bullets on an armored police vehicle and, soon after, on a nearby police patrol.

None of the rebel groups fighting to oust India from the mostly Muslim region has claimed responsibility for the attack, and the three top separatist leaders in Kashmir condemned it. The memo, marked "top secret", warned that a "sensational attack by terrorist outfits can not be ruled out" in the mostly Muslim region. "The terrorists need to succeed only once", Mr. Madhav said. Several prominent city organisations and activists gathered at Azad Maidan Wednesday to condemn the attack on Amarnath pilgrims.

Dorokhin further said, "our joint efforts and unity in developing our cooperation will be the basis for ensuring security in Eurasia". The United States and India will continue to fight together against terrorist threats in every part of the world.

"My prayers are with the victims & their families of this senseless, vicious attack on the #AmarnathYatra pilgrims", tweeted Congresswoman Anna G Eshoo. Our condolences to the families. It was also said that the bus and its pilgrims were not registered with the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board (SASB) that manages the affairs of the annual Yatra.
