This book is an accessible examination and comparison of two important comparable worth cases, on in the United States and one in Great Britain. Helen Castrilli and Julie Hayward refused to tolerate inequality and took their complaints to the courts.
This is the story of their remarkable odysseys. It is also the story of the struggle in two societies to reconcile an sense of justice with the low pay for certain jobs, such as cooking and typing, that have become identified as "woman's work".
By examining the details of two important cases, the author focuses not only on policy but on the promise and limitations of attempting to change policy through litigation.
