An Act for All Contexts: Incorporating the Pregnancy Discrimination Act into Title IX to Help Pregnant Students Gain and Retain Access to Education
Few would agree that pregnancy discrimination is a tolerable by7 product of a modern society. Yet there is at least one segment of society where pregnancy discrimination can thrive²federally funded schools. Even though Title IX was passed in 1972 to bar discrimination in schools based on sex, it is quite possible for schools to discriminate based on pregnancy with little impunity. Worse, those who suffer the discrimination cannot sue for the harms they suffered in federal court, nor can they seek monetary redress, even if they were financially harmed by the discrimination.
