On Jan. 21, thousands of people are expected to gather in D.C. for the Women's March on Washington. Hundreds will do the same in Pittsburgh for a sister march. “The idea of the march is that ‘Human rights are women’s right, and women’s rights are human rights,’ ” organizer Anna Marie Petrarca Gire said. “We would like anybody to show up.” So far, more than 800 people have RSVP'd on Facebook.
The City of Pittsburgh wouldn’t ask job seekers about their salary history under a bill introduced Tuesday by Councilman Dan Gilman. "Looking into a job applicant’s wage history perpetuates wage inequity for women and minorities. A salary offer should be based on the duties of the job and a candidate’s qualifications," Gilman said in a release. The bill would only apply to the city government, its agencies, departments and divisions. It “encourages private companies to create policies matching those of the City of Pittsburgh.”
City officials will soon be able to take into account when and where Pittsburghers are using Uber when planning for transportation needs in the city. The ride-sharing company announced plans for a website called Uber Movement that will be full of data about Uber rides around the world. One policy expert for the city of Pittsburgh said he's excited to use the information for creating detours and completing traffic impact studies.
It's a performance by U.K. theater collective Forced Entertainment that organizers say "takes the audience on a hallucinatory journey, creating a compelling performance about optimism, individual agency and the desire for change."

Other than Joey Porter's arrest, Ben Roethlisberger's health will be the biggest story leading up to game day, even if it’s a non-story at this point. That’s because, simply, the Steelers would have no chance in Kansas City without him. Here's a look at his stats including a 5-1 record against the Chiefs. (And speaking of Porter, the independent Citizens Police Review Board said it will look into the arrest, though the police chief supports the arresting officer's actions.)
