Madam Librarian

The AP has picked up the story of the Harvard librarian who is suing for race and sex discrimination.  In her allegations, she claims that her supervisor told her she was a “joke”, apparently because she “was seen merely as a pretty girl who wore sexy outfits, low cut blouses, and tight pants.”  I hope that’s not all she has to make her case, but it should make for an interesting trial, especially if Harvard admits that its decision was based on her appearance.
