Equal Pay Day sounds like a holiday. But it’s not so much a celebration as it is an ironic reminder of how far we have yet to go. Held on April 17, the day marked how long a woman has to work into 2012 to make what a man made in 2011. In other words, it takes a woman 16 months and 17 days to reach what a man earns in 12 months. And Lilly Ledbetter, who sued Goodyear for discriminatory pay and won a landmark Supreme Court case, has been arguably the face of the movement (Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, first bill President Obama signed) and wrote this noteworthy piece in HuffPost.
“I was far from naïve: I’d known from the get-go I’d have to work longer and smarter than the men in order to prove myself. I came in early and stayed late to make sure my area was prepped properly. I rarely said no, never stopped learning, and never backed down.” (via)
