Ann Branigar Hopkins Papers.


Ann Branigar Hopkins Papers.



This is a collection of personal and professional papers, including materials related to the Hopkins v. Price Waterhouse U. S. Supreme Court case. The final Supreme Court decision capped a seven-year battle against Hopkins’ employer for gender discrimination and her final victory in 1990 helped to expand workplace discrimination laws to include gender stereotyping.

The collection date ranges from 1967-2001 and includes correspondence, court documents, materials related to the book So Ordered: Making Partner the Hard Way (University of Massachusetts Press, c1996), newspaper and periodical publications, photographs, and a scrapbook.

Additional personal correspondence (1965-1989) between Hopkins and a former Hollins professor are located in a separate collection: Julia Randall Papers.
