2016 Impact: Women’s Rights Will Not Be Violated on Our Watch
4 female students. 1 serial sexual predator. A major university called to account.
Justice for female shipyard workers outnumbered 16 to 1.
Helping pregnant grocery workers stay on the job.
2016 was a hard hitting year of impact litigation for the ERA team.
We reached an historic class action settlement on behalf of shipyard workers denied promotion, filed suit to challenge gender discrimination in the workers’ compensation system, and fought for a state-wide class of female grocery workers told to go home – permanently – once they got pregnant.
We celebrated a trial win for female sheriff deputies retaliated against for standing up to sex discrimination, achieved blind auditions at a famous jazz orchestra that hasn’t had a woman member in decades, and fought pay discrimination costing highly acclaimed law professors millions of dollars.
We also filed claims on behalf of restaurant workers and gold miners and thousands more.
The upshot? Policy reforms benefitting tens of thousands of workers and students, millions of dollars in restitution, and a clear message: rights will not be violated on ERA’s watch.
