Alexander v. Yale: Collected Documents from the Yale Undergraduate Women's Caucus and Grievance Committee.
Yale Univ., New Haven, CT.
Papers concerning the lawsuit charging that Yale University condones sexual harassment of women students, Alexander v. Yale, have been compiled by the Yale Undergraduate Women's Caucus. The specifics of the case are described by Caucus publications and press releases. The suit, filed in July 1977 by four female undergraduates and one male professor, charges that the university condones sexual harassment of women students by not providing adequate grievance mechanisms to handle complaints and that this constitutes sex discrimination in violation of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The caucus views this as a class action suit, claiming that sexual harassment is widespread. Among the papers included are: deposition notices, memos, briefs, and related correspondence, as well as statements by the plaintiff and the Yale Undergraduate Women's Caucus. The court's ruling on motions to dismiss, and memorandum of decision are also included. The December 21, 1977 decision by a federal magistrate ruling that the lawsuit against Yale University may go forward to trial is also discussed. (SF)
