Working women, labor unions, and collective action played a crucial role in passing and implementing the Pregnancy Discrimination Act. The Article describes how labor unions pushed for the passage of the Act and later made protections for pregnant workers real through collective bargaining, internal education efforts, and litigation. Finally, the Article discusses the fundamental improvements for working women that still must be achieved and the need for strengthened worker organizations if those changes are to become a reality
