Lilly Ledbetter was employed by Goodyear Tire for nineteen years before she discovered that she was paid far less for the same work as her male peers were being paid. The lawsuit she filed against them eventually reached the Supreme Court. While she will nit ever receive the money that was denied her in the many years vshe worked for Goodyear, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which is named after her, was passed so that other women will not have to suffer from such inequity.
