Listen to NCCP Book Club discussion of Because of Sex

Because of Sex: One Law, Ten Cases, and Fifty Years That Changed American Women's Lives at Work by Gillian Thomas

Because of Sex Gillian Thomas

Please join NCCP on Wednesday, May 11, for a discussion of Because of Sex: One Law, Ten Cases, and Fifty Years that Changed American Women's Lives at Work with author Gillian Thomas (St. Martin's Press, March 2016, 272 pages).

An employment lawyer specializing in women's rights, Thomas looks at ten cases that have defined the fight for equality since the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which made it illegal to discriminate "because of sex." Among them is the Supreme Court’s December 2014 ruling in Young v. United Parcel Service, Inc., vacating a lower court’s decision against delivery driver Peggy Young, who sued UPS for putting her on unpaid leave owing to medical restrictions against lifting while she was pregnant.
