Professor Deborah L. Rhode is quoted in a Washington Post story commenting on discrimination against women in the workplace:

"It's not uncommon to find employers responding in this way to employees who become pregnant," said Stanford Law School Professor Deborah Rhode.

Asked how hard it would be to prove discrimination, she replied: "It's not rocket science ... There's usually documentary evidence that shows what was their job before and what was their job when they came back. And is there any other plausible explanation other than discrimination."
