In November, the Yale Journal of Law and Feminism will commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA), along with the 20th anniversary of the Journal, with a symposium on Nov. 7-8, 2008 that brings together the women and men who have been involved in every critical phase of the decades-long campaign for sex equality in the workplace.
The event will feature distinguished advocates and scholars from across the country to share their insights into the PDA and the future of workplace equality with students and faculty at the Yale Law School. Judge Marsha Berzon will be our Keynote speaker, and Sue Ross and Wendy Williams will be among the participants.
The symposium is being planned in coordination with Professors Wiliam Eskridge, Judith Resnik. The Journal of Law and Feminism will publish an issue devoted to the PDA and our twentieth anniversary, including pieces written by conference participants and by members of the Journal.
Wendy Williams was the woman who taught me employment discrimination law at Georgetown Law and she is a wonderful scholar and person. This should be a very worthwhile event.
