Grossman on Pregnancy, Work, and Equality

Grossman Joanna L. Grossman (Hofstra) has just posted on SSRN her articke (forthcoming Georgetown L.J.) Pregnancy, Work, and the Promise of Equal Citizenship.  Here's an excerpt from the abstract:

Can women capture the benefits of equal citizenship in a legal system that does not mandate necessary accommodations for pregnant workers? This article argues that current pregnancy discrimination law, which bases the right to work on full capacity, systematically deprives women of equal opportunity to make use of their innate capacities and talents in the workplace. This failure, in turn, compromises the quest for equal social citizenship - the right of equal access to paid work - that has been a cornerstone of the modern women’s movement.
