National Partnership for Women & Families

Fighting for Fair Pay

Thanks to your support – and President Obama’s leadership – women are one step closer to equal pay.

In 2009, after a year-long campaign, the National Partnership successfully helped secure an important victory for fair pay when President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, reversing the harmful U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Ledbetter v. Goodyear.

Today, we applaud President Obama for signing numerous executive actions that advance fair pay for federal employees — setting a good example for other employers to follow — and we urge Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.
