Transcript MOTHER WINS CASE Women won the first case on job discrimination against females to be heard by the United States Supreme Court. The Court ruled unanimously that under the 1964 Federal Civil Rights Act an employer who has men with young children on the payroll cannot automatically refuse to hire women with preschoolers at home. An employer must show, case by case, how a mother's domestic situation will prevent her from doing an adequate job. She cannot be rejected simply because she is a woman. The decision was by no means a complete victory. The Court indicated that a woman with children at home may be somehow less likely than a man with children to do a job well. Under the 1964 law such a woman could be turned down accordinp to the court. In a concurring opinion, Justice Thurgood Marshall expressed his concern about the court's ruling. A company's requirements that workei provide for the care of their children so their work is not affected, he said, must apply to men and women equally. Marshall said he feared "the court has fallen into the trap of assuming that the Act permits ancient canards about the proper role of women to be a basis for discrimination." The Justice Department and the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund brought the test case on behalf of Ida Phillips of Orlando, Florida, against the Martin-Marietta Corporation. A receptionist at that company had turned away Ms. Phillips, mother of seven young children. The Legal Defense Fund and the Justice Department brought the case to the Court to safeguard the jobs of more than four million women who are in the job market and have young children at home. Many of these women are black. About one-third are either the sole support of their households or have husbands with incomes below $5000 annually. THE WOMEN'S RIGHTS LAW REPORTER, A NEW WEAPON FOR WOMEN'S LAWYERS, BEGINS PUBLICATION IN JANUARY, 1971. IT WILL COVER DEVELOPMENTS IN AREAS OF LAW WHICH ESPECIALLY AFFECT WOMEN AS WOMEN. FOR INFORMATION WRITE WOMEN'S RIGHTS LAW REPORTER 180 UNIVERSITY AVENUE. NEWARK_,NEW JERSEY 07102 1 If you think you are being discriminated against in employment because of your sex, write to: Chairman William Brown, III Equal Employment Opportunity Commission 1800 G Street, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20506 Also available from the same address is a pamphlet, "Guidelines on Discrimination Because of Sex," which explains about what is and what is not considered discrimination. According to the Institute of Transportation and Traffic Engineer- ing(ITTE)at UCLA, 22 percent of all automobile accidents and 48 percent of all highway fatalities in the last decade may be attributed to drivers who fell asleep at the wheel. A recent German study indicates that women have more stamina and endurance over a long driving haul than men. Women take fewer risks at all times, hence make fewer mistakes. And during night driving, women react immediately to the first sign of drowsiness, turning on the radio or singing to keep themselves awake, while the men are lulled by a false sense of confidence into dangerous drowsiness at the wheel.
