Equal Work Equal Pay with Lilly Leadbetter
Wednesday Mar 6th, 2013 - Wednesday Mar 6th, 2013
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM - Grand Salon, University Student Union
CSUNĂ˘€™s WomenĂ˘€™s Research and Resource Center (WRRC) was one of nine campuses recently awarded a grant by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to implement community-based solutions in response to AAUWĂ˘€™s new research, Ă˘€śGraduating to a Pay Gap: The Earnings of Women and Men One Year After College Graduation.Ă˘€ť Thanks in large part to this grant from AAUW, the WRRC and co-sponsors will host an event featuring Lilly Ledbetter, who fought for 10 years to close the gender pay gap.
That Supreme Court ruling was in turn legislatively nullified by the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the first major piece of legislation President Barack Obama signed into law. Ledbetter will speak about "Equal Work, Equal Pay" on March 6th in the Grand Salon at 4 p.m., after which there will be a Q&A and a signing of her new book, Grace and Grit.
