Lilly Ledbetter, the nationally known advocate for equal pay for women, endorsed U.S. Rep Artur Davis Wednesday and is accompanying the Democratic candidate for governor as he travels the state touting his proposals to close the pay gap between men and women.

Davis, who will appear with Ledbetter Wednesday morning at the Harbert Center in downtown Birmingham, said his proposals include certifying and rewarding companies that offer gender equality in pay and creating a state income tax credit. The credit aimed at middle and lower income Alabamians, would help pay for childcare.
