The Supreme Court recently upheld a strict interpretation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, ruling that an employee cannot file a gender discrimination lawsuit more than 180 days after she accepts the wage offer. The 5-4 decision stated that without a deadline, employers would find it difficult to defend against claims "arising from employment decisions that are long past." This infuriates women leaders, who point out that discriminatory patterns often take years to emerge. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, writing for the dissenting minority, beseeched Congress to address the issue, saying, "The court does not comprehend, or is indifferent to, the insidious way in which women can be victims of pay discrimination."
