Equal Pay - At Last



President Obama has chosen an equal pay for women law (Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act) as the first piece of legislation to sign. Bravo to the President and all feminists (women and men who believe in the equality of women as human beings) who paved the way for such legislation to finally pass. Although it is only the beginning, I breathe a sigh of hope that future generations will feel more empowered and less afraid of intimidation with the law of the land on their side.
