    Through first-person accounts and vivid narrative, Gillian Thomas' Because of Sex tells the story of how one law, Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, revolutionized the lives of America’s working women. The law made it illegal to discriminate “because of sex.” But that simple phrase didn’t mean much until ordinary women began using the law to get justice on the job. Some took the fight all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Gillian Thomas is a Senior Staff Attorney with the ACLU's Women’s Rights Project. Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including Slate and The Atlantic.
