Pregnancy Discrimination Litigation: Legal Erosion of Capitalist Ideology under Equal Employment Opportunity Law.
Edwards, Mark Evan
Social Forces, v75 n1 p247-68 Sep 1996
Analysis of 82 court cases involving pregnancy discrimination, 1972-91, shows that this litigation revealed the gender bias of equal employment opportunity law and capitalist economic relations, eroded assumptions about economic imperatives for not accommodating pregnant workers, and laid the groundwork for the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993. Includes many cases involving pregnant teachers. Contains 32 references. (SV)
