The proposed class in Wal-Mart was "one of the most expansive class actions ever." It was composed of 1.5 million women -- every woman who had ever worked at any Wal-Mart store in the entire country within the last 13 years.
The most important case before the Supreme Court right now is Wal-Mart V. Dukes. At stake is the ability of women harmed by unfair corporate policies to band together as a class and fight a unified battle in court.
What would you do if you learned that two weeks from now a man repeatedly accused of aggressive sexual misconduct may decide whether women have the power to confront people who discriminate against them?
With Wal-Mart v. Dukes the Court will soon hear arguments in one of the most important civil rights cases in the country's history. Their decision will pave the way for further progress or stop it dead in its tracks.
