NASW Executive Director Betsy Clark was honored to receive an invitation to the White House on Thursday January 29, 2009 to witness President Obama sign his first piece of legislation into law, the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. This historic legislation reverses the Supreme Court decision that limited women and other workers’ ability to sue for wage discrimination. The success of the bill indicates that Congress is ready to move towards the ideal of fairness in pay for women across America. Dr. Clark is joined by other women’s advocacy groups, members of Congress, and high-profile strategists that all worked to make this bill a reality.
