    Sorry she has to go through it, but happy to see what she is able to achieve under those circumstances. I hope she is successful in her court case based off of sexism and racism and this opens up greater opportunities for those which follow suit

    If that's her in the image ... she's got her uniform on ... in full gear!

    These kinds of fights are so hard on a person ... the system does not intend on making it easy.

    In fact, they've enacted legislation to make it more difficult, and they say above, expect robust defense.

    I wish her well ... i hope she's successful.

    Thanks for sharing!
