another step forward

Yesterday President Barack Obama signed a new law which will make it easier for women to sue their employers for pay discrimination.

The new bill is named after Lilly Ledbetter who, after decades of work in an Alabama tyre plant, discovered she had been paid less than her male colleagues.

“It is fitting that with the very first bill that I sign … it is upholding one of this nation’s first principles – that we are all created equal and each deserve a chance to pursue our own version of happiness,” Obama said.
