Stand with Barack Obama and co-sign Lilly Ledbetter’s letter to Mitt Romney

      Organizing for Action

Lilly Ledbetter went 20 years being paid less than male coworkers who had less training, less education, and fewer years on the job -- until someone spoke up to make things right. When President Obama heard her story, he fought for her right to be treated fairly, and the first bill he signed into law as president was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

Lilly Ledbetter wrote a direct letter to Governor Romney, asking him to show some leadership on an issue that matters to millions of women: equal pay for equal work. So far, he has refused to take a stand. When his advisers were asked recently whether they support the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act -- silence. When the Washington Times asked his campaign five times last week whether he supports the Paycheck Fairness Act -- silence. That's not leadership.  And with women making 77 cents for every dollar paid to men, this is clearly a law our nation needs. If you agree, please add your name to the letter right now - cosign the letter and ask Governor Romney to show some responsibility.

      We are 52% of the population, why are we treated like we're "below" some men? We gave LIFE to all men. I will never understand why some don't understand! We are EQUAL, get it yet? Ugh! Vote OBAMA 2012 :)

      Equality people, obviously Romney is very against females for his latest campaigns that always involved something that would lead females into lesser standings than men and richer women.
