At least for a short while Saturday afternoon, "Male Chauvinist Pigg" was part of the Capitol's Hall of Famous Missourians.

"Missouri is overwhelmingly anti-women," said Mary Mosley of Fulton, wearing a pig-face mask like the other participants during a brief mock induction ceremony. "This started before the Republicans took over the Legislature, but it's even worse lately."

As supporters of Pigg's induction occasionally provided calls of "Sooweeee" in the background, Mosley listed a number of examples supporting her claim, including: "Missouri has never ratified the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution."
