I really have nothing today. But I did come across this yesterday.  

Actually, what I came across was a much more abbreviated clip of this clip. 


The shortened clip didn't mention it was a commercial for equal pay, just that Batgirl was demanding it, and Batman telling her it was not time for jokes. 

Honestly, that seemed more honest then a 1973 commercial for equal pay for women. More of a sign of the times.  But yay for Batman, Robin and Batgirl to reprise their roles 5-6 years after the series ended. And way to be that progressive, Bruce Wayne & Co. 

To be brutally honest, my first thought wasn't about 'equal pay'.  Commissioner Gordon's daughter (oops, spoiler alert) says she's paid less than Robin.  That thought?   Robin gets paid? 

I know Wayne is a millionaire and all, but I didn't know Dick Grayson had an I-9 and some W-2s.  Lord, I hope dental and medical came with his employ.

If you are old enough to remember Robin, you are old enough to know about age discrimination
