After a prolonged fight against gender pay discrimination at her job at Goodyear Tire & Rubber in Gadsden, Alabama, Lilly Ledbetter succeeded in getting the Supreme Court ruling against her overturned. The effect of the Court’s holding was reversed by the passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009. President Obama signed the Act into law on January 29, 2009. In May 2010 Ms.Ledbetter was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the City University of New York. Sponsored by the Center for Women and Gender. Presented by St. Michael's College.  Co-sponsors: Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, History Department, Career Development Services, Multicultural Student Affairs Office, Vermont Commission on Women.

How Our Friends Open the Doors!

In early July, MMCTV moved to a new location, renting a space on the 3rd floor of the Richmond Town Center. It’s an exciting shift into the center of town, with three nonprofit neighbors also in the building and the library across the parking lot. While hosting our TV camp for youngsters in August, we enjoyed having the elbow room at our new space!
