Ledbetter, a former supervisor at a Goodyear tire plant in Alabama, sued the company after discovering several months before her 1998 retirement that, for years, she was paid less than her male counterparts. A jury awarded Ledbetter more than $3 million. But the Supreme Court overturned that judgment in March 2007, ruling 5-4 that a 180-day statute of limitation for her to file a lawsuit had started from the first instance of discrimination, meaning that her suit about more than a decade of discrimination was untimely.

Um..many companies give men paternity leave for up to 6 months. There is still a glass ceiling when it comes to women in the workforce but I thought everyone knew that? A CEO of a medium sized company made more in 1 year than Jenna Jameson made in 5 years. Imagine that....
