After a video introduction, Lilly Ledbetter, Women's Equality Leader and Namesake of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, talks about her struggle to earn equal pay as a woman for the same job done as a man, and how the first bill President Obama signed into law.

"That was the first step, but it can't be the last. Because women still earn just 77 cents for every dollar men make. Those pennies add up to real money... maybe 23 cents doesn't sound like a lot to a person with a Swiss bank account ... but Gov. Romney, when we lose 23 cents every hour, every day, every paycheck, every job over the entire life, we lose what cannot be measure by dollars."
