  • Hopkins V. Price Waterhouse

    3 pages in length. The foundation of this case is in the fundamental understanding of and appreciation for the detrimental impact sexual discrimination has upon a woman's ability to secure earned promotion within a company that determines advancement based upon much more than one's talent. Hopkins was initially refused partnership at Price Waterhouse not for lack of aptitude for the position but rather because she was deemed 'too masculine' for what they believed a woman should project within the company's environment. While half of the decision makers - the majority not surprisingly being men - heralded her tremendous talent for landing key contracts, they could not get past the stereotypical perception of how a female partner should be physically represented in the firm. As such, she was recommended to walk, talk and look more feminine so that when she would be brought back for reconsideration the following year, her chances of making partner would be much better; a year later when she was not reconsidered for partnership, Hopkins sued Price Waterhouse citing violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
