Equal pay act remembered on 50th anniversary
Monday marks the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act.
President John F Kennedy signed the act in 1963.
It was created to make sure women could earn the same salary as men.
Right now, women make 77 cents to every dollar a man makes.
President Obama says while there have been improvements, there is still more to be done.
Some say there is still a long way to go when it comes to pay equality.
Last year, senate Republicans blocked a bill that Democrats said would close loop-holes in the original act.
