Embed_button
April is the month every year when women working full-time, year-round, finally catch up with the amount men earned by December 31 of the previous year. Almost 50 years after the Equal Pay Act was passed, the gender pay gap remains at 78% on the man's dollar. Martha Burk interviews Lilly Ledbetter, the woman who sued Goodyear and literally changed the law of the land. The Ledbetter segment is also combined with an interview with Joe Sellers, the attorney representing the women suing Walmart for pay discrimination in the single file version. The Sellers segment can also be found on PRX as a stand-alone program titled Dukes v. Walmart One Year Later: Where Do Women Stand?
