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.
