The first act signed into law by President Obama was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act which he did with Lilly Ledbetter by his side. Lilly Ledbetter had worked at a company for 19 years not knowing that her male counterparts were being paid more for doing the same job. In comparison, she lost $200,000 in salaray and even more in Social Security and pension benefits. She sued and took her case all the way to the Supreme Court. Equal pay requires that people differentiated by gender or other groups will receive equal pay for doing the same job. This case represents the recognition and the liberation of women in often come with the increase of feminine energy that accompanies an Emotional High.
