Ms. Magazine: The Future of Pay Equity, 15 Years After Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

January 29. 2024

ERA’s National Campaigns Director & Director of Equal Pay Today Deborah J. Vagins co-authored an op-ed with Lilly Ledbetter for Ms. Magazine, about the 15th anniversary of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

We will not rest until we can enact more policies that give workers stronger tools to challenge pay disparities and other forms of employment discrimination. It’s time to set fair and transparent wages, so people like Lilly would have been able to make what she rightfully earned while working at Goodyear Tire.

Read the op-ed.

Watch our webinar about the anniversary, featuring Lilly Ledbetter, federal government officials, and advocates from across the country.
