Abstract

In 1973, Marcia R. Lieberman was denied tenure with the University of Connecticut English Department. The same year, she initiated a class action suit against the institution, charging sexual discrimination on behalf of all women who had served or sought employment on or after 1 October 1967. The six year suit was found in favor of the University; Lieberman's appeal was denied in 1980. Ellen Embardo was a library staff member and one of the plaintiffs in the class action suit.
