Inequality

What is the Inequality?

Men and Women even at the same job don't receive the same pay. In most cases Women receive 77 cents to every dollar a Man makes. This isn't right, Women deserve just as many rights as Men.

Where did this mess come from?

It started in the early 1900's, On election day in 1920 Women everywhere protested for their right to vote. A National Women's Party, led by Alice Paul succeeded on getting a rights amendment passed by congress for equal rights. In 2009, Lilly Ledbetter found that she wasn't getting the same pay as her other male colleagues and this really frustrated her because she felt she wasn't being treated fairly and equally to her other male peers. Pay discrimination has been occurring for over 100 years. Lets take action and stop this!
