On January 29, 2009, I stood proudly beside the President as he signed
his first bill -- the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act -- into law.

Its passage represented the culmination of a decades-long struggle that
I -- and countless other women -- faced to end pay discrimination
between men and women.

For nearly 20 years, my employer had systematically paid me less than my male colleagues -- and this landmark legislation makes sure that no other woman will be put in the same situation.

We still have a lot of work ahead of us. There is still one race left to decide
the makeup of the U.S. Senate in the Louisiana December 10th runoff between Democrat Foster Campbell and Republican John Kennedy.
 
I'm doing everything I can to make sure Foster is Louisiana's next Senator. Will you join me by contributing $25 or more to the Defend Louisiana PAC to make sure Foster isn't outspent by the corporate special interests?

Foster has consistently stood up for Louisiana women and families
throughout his career. Foster stood up for victims of domestic violence by partnering with utilities to waive start-up credit and deposit requirements
for victims fleeing violence. Foster will stand up to anyone who wants to
sell our seniors out to Wall-Street.

Help elect a senator who will stand up to anyone for Louisiana women
and families -- not against them.

We owe it to the women who marched to give us the rights we enjoy
today to support candidates who proudly stand on our side on major
issues like pay equality.

Thank you for standing with Foster, with me, and with the women and
families of this great nation.
