Equal Pay Act of 1963

The Equal Pay Act of 1963 was an act of legislation which amended the Fair Labor Standards Act which aimed at abolishing wage differentials based on sex. The links above give a detailed account of this act, and the points on which Congress made the decision to ratify it . . . based on the harm that is caused by sex discrimination.

A question . . . Did the enacting of this piece of legislation actually accomplish what it intended . . . Just a question. . .
