State of the Union: Economic Edition

In lieu of tonight’s State of the Union address, I am wondering: Will President Obama touch on the gendered aspect of the wage gap?  This address is to touch on the economic inequality of this nation, but I haven’t heard any tidbits relating to this issue as of yet.  Sure, this is a bit premature, but I continue anyway.  

Thus far, I have heard people touch on minimum wage increase, class separation/gaps, etc. etc., but nothing on gender.  It isn’t news that women in this country make less than men.  There is plenty of evidence and research out there.  So, will the president himself make this issue known, or will it be swept under the rug?  It won’t be the first time.  

You’ll know the answer as soon as I do if you tune in tonight at 9 p.m.  The SOTU will be broadcast on most major networks and also online at the White House social media sites.  It will also be aired on NPR and websites such as PolicyMic.
