President Obama Explores America’s Newest National Monument (The White House)

Tuesday, April 12, 2016 was Equal Pay Day. On that day President Obama designated a new national monument to commemorate the suffrage movement that fought for women’s voting rights. Watch the video to take a tour with the President through the new Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument.

“I want young girls and boys to come here, 10, 20, 100 years from now, to know that women fought for equality, it was not just given to them.” — President Obama designating the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument on Equal Pay Day.

The White House

It should be noted, however, that Equal Pay Day does not yet celebrate equal pay for equal work. Rather, it aims to heighten awareness and spur the fight for equal pay. On average, a woman earns only 78 cents for every dollar a man earns. The pay gap hasn’t changed in over a decade.
