“The first bill that President Obama signed into law was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. I think it says something about his priorities that the first bill he put his name on has my name on it too. As he said that day with me by his side, ‘Making our economy work means making sure it works for everyone.” Lilly Ledbetter

Lilly Ledbetter remains a strong voice for pay equality. Ledbetter and President Obama’s collaborative work reflect that pay equality is a fundamental element for men and women.

Men are vital advocates in resolving the wage gap, encouraging pay transparency, and ensuring equal pay for equal work. Be an ally not an asshole. Stand with women.
