President Obama says he's fed up with salary sexism, and he's going to do all he can to stop it, including trying to pass legislation that would make wage discrimination against women illegal. Specifically, he's fighting for reforms in the Paycheck Fairness Act, which didn't get sufficient support to pass in the Senate last fall.

He's taking advantage of March being National Women's History Month, to bring the issue to light again. "Today, women still earn on average only about 75 cents for every dollar a man earns. That's a huge discrepancy," he observed in his weekly radio address.
