University of Baltimore Law Review


Chai Feldblum:

I'm thrilled to be here. I can't say how cool it is to be at a law school that has a Center on Applied Feminism. How many law schools have that? And given, as you heard, I'm a commissioner at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that cares about having fair and just work, to be at a conference on applied feminism and work.

This is also an important year for the Commission itself. Fifty years ago, in July, our Commission opened its doors for the first time and started to help implement Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. That Title of the law prohibited employers from discriminating on a range of characteristics, including sex.
