Professor Minna Kotkin Mentioned in New York Times “Economix” Blog

Professor Minna Kotkin was quoted in a recent New York Times “Economix” blog post on discerning sex discrimination. The article by University of Massachusetts Amherst Professor Nancy Folbre discusses sex discrimination suits and how female workers have been enabled to fight for fair wages since the Equal Pay Act of 1963. She quotes Professor Kotkin in reference to the ways women have been prevented from learning successful class-action suits.
