Fight Back and Win by Gloria Allred

Over a dozen years ago, Gloria Allred wrote this book, Fight Back and Win about her first 30 years fighting injustice as an attorney.  Of these 50 cases, so many of them were high profile ones. Almost every case has had impact on our lives to this day!  When she started representing clients in the mid 1970’s, I just graduated college and was entering the workforce. My job interviews included questions about whether I used birth control which was a case on hiring discrimination she fought that same year!  Women didn’t have their own credit cards, we didn’t recognize the rights of gay people, and it was still pretty much a society ruled by white men. So reading about these cases I can see how far we have come in our legal and court system to to protect our rights.
