New Research from the Pregnant Scholar

July 19, 2022


New research from the Pregnant Scholar and a cross-institutional team who bring decades of experience in the legal and medical fields designing bias interrupters and advancing diversity in STEM education, revealed that amongst the top-rated medical schools only 14% of the schools reviewed had substantive, stand-alone parental leave policies, while the majority of schools had leave of absence policies without mention of parental leave.


Overview of New Draft of Title IX Rules by the Pregnant Scholar

July 19, 2022


While the landmark law prohibiting sex discrimination in education has long protected pregnant and parenting students, we know more protections are sorely needed to make Title IX’s promise of gender equity in education a reality. The Pregnant Scholar applauds the Department of Educations’ just-released proposed Title IX regulations as they relate to students who are, or will become, pregnant or parents. While further actions are needed to protect student parents, we encourage the adoption of these draft regulations without delay.


New Report – Clarification or Complaints? The Impact of Family Responsibilities Discrimination Laws on State Enforcement Agencies

July 15, 2022

Clarification or Complaints cover

Our newest report, “Clarification or Complaints? The Impact of Family Responsibilities Discrimination Laws on State Enforcement Agencies” explores whether and to what extent family responsibilities discrimination laws increase the number of complaints filed with state agencies tasked with enforcing them. Our research found that in states that prohibit discrimination against family caregivers, the average total number of discrimination complaints filed with state enforcement agencies decreased in the years following enactment of caregiver discrimination statutes.
