The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act
President Obama made his stance on women’s equality clear when he signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. The act, which restored basic protections against pay discrimination, was the first piece of legislation the President signed when he entered into office. He still advocates for the Paycheck Fairness Act, which was blocked by republicans multiple times, andÂ he has convened an Equal Pay Task Force. TheÂ force is to protect women from pay discrimination and ensure that existing equal pay laws are being implemented.
