(AP) The status of women and the unfairness they still face is the subject of a pledge from President Barack Obama.

      

In his weekly radio and Internet address, the President says he'll continue the fight to help women get fair wages, escape poverty and compete in academic areas with higher earning potential such as math and engineering.

     

He says the struggling economy is a reminder that equal pay for equal work is really "a family issue."

    

President Obama said he was disappointed when a bill to give women more power to stop pay disparities - the Paycheck Fairness Act – was blocked in the Senate.

    

The effort to take up the Paycheck Fairness Act fell just short of the 60 votes needed to overcome GOP opposition.
