April 12 is Equal Pay Day — the day when the earnings of a typical woman, working full-time, have caught up to what a man made in the previous year.
President Obama took that day to recognize the new Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument.
"This house became a hotbed for activism. A centerpiece for the struggle for equality. A monument, not just for women's equality, but ultimately, for equality for everybody," said President Obama.
