Womenstake:

As we've previously discussed, on May 29, 2007, the Supreme Court issued a decision that severely weakens remedies for employees who have faced pay discrimination. The case, Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., was decided 5-4, with Justice Alito writing the decision. Justice Ginsburg took the unusual step of announcing her strong dissent in the courtroom.[..]

The good news is that the Supreme Court's decision was based on its interpretation of Title VII-meaning that Congress can tell the Court that it got it wrong.

People For the American Way has a petition for you to sign to urge Congress to support legislation to correct the decision.

Can you help us out?
