TITLE IX AND PREGNANCY DISCRIMINATION IN HIGHER EDUCATION: THE NEW FRONTIER
Presented by Mary Ann Mason, professor and co-director of the Center, Economics & Family Security at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law.
This workshop is based on a new paper, co-authored with Jaclyn Younger, published in the N.Y.U. Review of Law & Social Change. That paper, Title IX and Pregnancy Discrimination in Higher Education: The New Frontier, addresses new efforts by the United States Department of Education to seek compliance relating to Title IX and pregnancy discrimination in educational institutions and discusses the recent efforts of the Department’s Office for Civil Rights to investigate and settling pregnancy discrimination claims as well as the lessons learned in private action lawsuits.
