Equal pay Activist Lilly Ledbetter on Gender Inequality and the Wage Gap

06:02

President Biden and First lady Dr. Jill Biden marked National Equal Pay Day at the White House this week. The date of the event, March 24th, is a symbolic representation of how far into the year a woman must work to match what a man made the previous year. Equal pay activist Lilly Ledbetter, the namesake of the first bill former President Obama signed into law: the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, spoke to NBC’s Joshua Johnson about how the country can address the gender pay gap.
