State Of Women’s Rights In America: Peggy Young v. UPS, Police Violence & More

peggyDecember 8, 2014 – Segment 3

We turn to the issue of women’s rights, especially in light of the case currently being heard before the U.S. Supreme Court, Peggy Young v. United Parcel Service (UPS). In 2006 Peggy Young, then a worker for UPS, became pregnant and asked for a reassignment that would not require heavy lifting. The company refused and put her on unpaid leave.

Joining us are: A. Adar Ayira, Project Manager of the More in the Middle Campaign for Associated Black Charities and facilitator and analyst at Baltimore Racial Justice Action, a program of Fusion Partnerships; Doug Colbert, Professor of Law at the University of Maryland Carey Law School; and Dani McClain, contributor to TheNation.com and Fellow with the Nation Institute.
