For the convenience of our readers

So it was 39 years ago today that the US Supreme Court ruled against the Pittsburgh Press in the case of Pittsburgh Press Co. v. Pittsburgh Commission on Human Relations.  The issue was whether the paper could have gender based want ads. 

So yes, it was nearly 4 years after man(kind) landed on the moon that local want ads continued to place most advertisements for receptionists in a "Female" section of the paper and most advertisements for engineers were in the "Male" section.

What may be shocking is that the leadership of at least the Pittsburgh Press actually litigated this all the way to the Supreme Court trying to defend the practice as a moral imperative. 


For the convenience of the readers of course.
