Summary: Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act may have outlawed sex discrimination, but it did not address the sexual harassment of women in the workplace. Meritor Savings Bank v. Vinson (1986) changed all of that. Adopting the legal theory pioneered by feminist Catharine MacKinnon that sexual harassment was indeed discriminatory, the Supreme Court's opinion brought the problem of sexual harassment into the spotlight, had far-reaching implications in the workplace, and also influenced such
high-profile controversies as the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings, the Tailhook scandal, and the Clinton impeachment. Book jacket.
