On February 26, 2016, Carolyn Wheeler, senior counsel for Katz Banks Kumin, delivered the keynote address for the St. Louis Law Review symposium, entitled “Shattering the Glass Ceiling: the Status of Women in the Workplace and the Change Needed for Equality.” Ms. Wheeler’s speech, entitled “Women’s Work is Never Done,” provided an historical overview of key legislation regarding women in the workplace, including the Equal Pay Act, the inclusion of sex in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the 1978 Pregnancy Discrimination Act, and the 2009 Lily Ledbetter Act. Ms. Wheeler also discussed how the interplay among Congress, courts, enforcement agencies, litigants and the general public creates a dynamic evolution in understanding sex discrimination and the barriers holding women back in the workplace.
