Key Reads on Gender and Sexuality Discrimination
A roundup of important stories on the fight for sexuality and gender equality in the workplace.
Today, ProPublica's Nina Martin reports how the landmark Walmart vs. Dukes ruling in 2011 has changed the face of discrimination law. “The Dukes decision had been cited more than 1,200 times in rulings by federal and state courts,” Martin reports. “Jury verdicts have been overturned, settlements thrown out, and class actions rejected or decertified."
We've rounded up some other key reads on a wide range of workplace discrimination, from the rape of undocumented farm workers to sexism in Silicon Valley. What stories did we miss? Let us know in the comments below, or tweet them to #MuckReads.
Note: We know discrimination is intersectional. We’ve focused our picks on those dealing primarily with gender and sexuality, but we welcome your suggestions for important reporting on discrimination of any kind.
