NwlcThe National Women's Law Center reports

In a hard-earned victory, the House of Representatives passed the Paycheck Fairness Act on July 31 with a vote of 247 to 178. This bill marks a critical step toward closing the wage gap between men and women. It updates and strengthens the Equal Pay Act of 1963, closing loopholes and improving the law’s effectiveness.
