Reenactments highlight value of legal advocacy in battling sex discrimination
October 29, 2013
The role of legal advocacy in challenging sex discrimination in the workplace and higher education will be the focus of the November American Association of University Women, Nevada County Branch meeting Nov. 16. Through readers theater-style reenactments, actual legal case histories will be presented by Stephanie Norton, Nevada County Branch Legal Advocacy Fund vice president, and a cast of AAUW members. The AAUW LAF works to challenge sex discrimination in the workplace and higher education, including unfair pay, pregnancy discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault and violations of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. LAF addresses these barriers by assisting people who are using the legal system to seek justice and change. Free and open to the public, the meeting will be at 9:30 a.m. Nov. 16 (program begins at 10 a.m.) at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main St., Grass Valley.
