State Rep. Andy Thomas, R-Brazil, speaks with Dale and Nina Blackwell about pay equity. The occasion was BPW/Indiana Policy and Action Lobby Day on April 16.

State Rep. Andy Thomas, R-Brazil, was sympathetic to womens' issues when members of the Business and Professional Women's Club met with him at Indianapolis recently.
