U.S. President Obama gives pen to Ledbetter after he signed sex discrimination bill in Washington
U.S. President Barack Obama gives the pen to Lilly Ledbetter (L) after he signed the Lilly Ledbetter sex discrimination bill in the East Room of the White House in Washington, January 29, 2009. Ledbetter, after 19 years on the job, sued her employer when she discovered she was the lowest-paid supervisor at the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company plant where she worked, despite having more experience than several male co-workers. Behind Obama are Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senator Pat Leahy (D-VT). REUTERS/Larry Downing (UNITED STATES)
