Brooklyn bar serves up brew with a splash of equality

One Woman Discovers the Wage Gap

While this video is simply a humorous satire, the gender wage gap is all too real. One Brooklyn bar wants to do something about it.

The Way Station is by no means just your average bar. This "Doctor Who" themed saloon is a sci-fi lover's paradise.

In addition to board game nights, cartoon movie madness, and eclectic musical acts, The Way Station celebrated July 7 (7/7) with a unique twist on ladies' night.

This was far from your average two-for-one "jungle juice" special. On July 7, The Way Station charged women 77% of what they owed. On their website, they explained their reasoning: "According to The White House, full-time working women earn just 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That's some shameful shit. So The Way Station is going to do something about it. On July 7th, or 7/7, this dubious honor will be recognized by charging all women 77% of what they owe, all night long."

The Way Station is the perfect example of how one small business can make big waves towards change.
