    She was asked about a new report that shows 40 percent of working moms are the primary earners in their family, yet women still earn less than men.

    When asked, what that says about our society -- this was her answer.

    "I think we can relate this back to education and how we are continuing to try to strive to (pause) figure out how to create jobs right now. That is the biggest problem and I think especially the men are, and, seen as the leaders of this. So we need to try to figure out how to create education better so that we can solve this problem. Thank you."
