Three hanky tear jerker

Norma Rae, call your office;
A woman who worked briefly as the executive assistant to the president of Bates College [Maine] has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the school, alleging she was expected to play tennis, jog and watch “chick flicks” with her boss.
Sarah Hulbert, of Auburn, wrote in her complaint in Androscoggin County Superior Court that she was intentionally treated differently from her male co-workers, which she said was a violation of the Maine Human Rights Act.
She'd rather be toiling in the groves of academe, but;
Hulbert is seeking damages, back pay and other costs.
And a movie deal?

  1. No means no. The boss had better have a document signed by that woman, affirming that she willingly played tennis at every set, and that the woman was not drunk and so able to give consent.
