Class Action Sex Discrimination Case

Host Howard Berkes talks with Susan Brackshaw, lead attorney in the class action lawsuit on sex discrimination at USIA and Voice of America, about her victory yesterday. The Federal Government agreed to pay 508 Million dollars to 1,100 women who had alleged sex discrimination at the USIA and Voice of America. The case took 23 years to settle and is the largest award for an employment discrimination case in the Civil Rights Act History.
