Who is Lily Ledbetter?
Find out Monday, March 25, 2013 at IVCC's Women's History Month Brown Bag in room C-316 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. In this session, "Beyond Lily Ledbetter: Why the Fair Pay Act Isn't Enough," Professor Amanda Cook Fesperman will discuss the history behind the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, what it achieved, and why women continue to face pay discrimination. Hailed as a great step forward in the struggle for equal pay, and the first bill signed by President Obama in his first term, the Fair Pay Act addresses only one small aspect of equal pay. There is still much to be done.
