PRSA Storytellers: Ethics Month: Lilly Ledbetter on Fair Pay
It started with #MeToo, before there was #MeToo. Then, for decades she fought to close the pay gap between women’s and men’s wages for equal work, to have the U.S. Supreme Court rule against her Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. discrimination case. Nevertheless, she persisted to inspire the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act of 2009, amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Ledbetter has managed a barrage of national media at her doorstep and at momentous events. She has made numerous television appearances, including the Rachel Maddow Show, Hardball with Chris Matthews, the CBS Morning Show, The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, The Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert and PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton.
