    Summary: 
    In 1998, after the author had spent 19 grueling years working at a Goodyear plant, an anonymous note showed her that she made 40 per cent less than her male counterparts. So began her decade-long legal battle for equal pay. In 1979 as a manager at Goodyear, she found men reluctant to take orders from a woman, and faced blatant sexual harassment. Goodyear continually transferred her between departments, citing poor performance, but failed to produce evidence when she requested it. She filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, leading to her landmark discrimination lawsuit under Title VII and the Equal Pay Act.
