Female Employees Win in Sexual Harassment Case

Current and former female employees of the Marin Municipal Water District in San Francisco won $635,000 from their employer in a sexual harassment case. After the two women who filed the suit get a portion of the money, the rest will go to about 75 other women. The women charged their managers with discriminating and harassing behavior, particularly after the women complained about certain incidents. In one instance, men showed the females a copy of Penthouse magazine. On many other occasions, men subjected them to sexually demeaning profanities and demoted or denied the women better jobs when they complained.
