A Great Moment in History

January 31, 2009

Today it happened. I wrote about it in my last post. Equal pay for equal work. Today President Obama made such a poingnant speech as he signed the Lilly Ledbetter bill that I thought that sharing the story was an important way to high-lite some of the magnificent women that are paving the way for all of us.
