President Obama: "When women succeed, America succeeds."

Kay Morrison is 90 years old. And in 1943, when she worked as a journeyman welder on the assembly line at Kaiser Shipyard #2 in Richmond, California, she earned the same wage as the man working the graveyard shift alongside her.

And yet, on average, full-time working women earn just 77 cents for every dollar earned by men.
