Lilly LedbetterLearn more about the equal pay debate from one of the nation’s leading advocates. Lilly Ledbetter was the plaintiff in the employment discrimination case, Ledbetter v Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. Her historic experience resulted in the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, President Barack Obama’s first piece of legislation, which restored workers’ rights to challenge wage discrimination.

Professor Nancy Zisk of the Charleston School of Law will offer opening and closing remarks about the current landscape of pay equity reform and moderate a question-and-answer session with Ms. Ledbetter.

This event is sponsored by the Duke University Women’s Center and co-sponsored by the Office of Institutional Equity, Baldwin Scholars, and the Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture.
