NWLC Testimony re: Pregnancy and Caregiver Discrimination to the EEOC

This testimony outlines the barriers that pregnant and caregiving women continue to face in the workplace, demonstrating that this discrimination functions to exclude women from many high-wage and high-demand jobs that can be critical to achieving economic security.  It concludes by making recommendations to address these barriers and advance the rights of working women. The supplemental testimony responds to questions posed by Commissioners at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
