San Francisco Board of Supervisors addresses race discrimination

The heads of several San Francisco city agencies vowed to do more to eliminate race discrimination in their departments during a volatile November 11 Board of Supervisors hearing, but many of the African-American workers gathered were unimpressed by what they heard. They and advocacy groups like the Service Employees International Union say that little has changed since San Francisco Mayor London Breed made similar statements when the board's Government Audit and Oversight Committee discussed the very same issues in September.

Former Avon employees sue over discrimination claims

Many women in the San Francisco Bay Area see Avon as a company that celebrates female entrepreneurship and empowerment. Nevertheless, two former employees of the company have filed a class-action lawsuit accusing the beauty products manufacturer of pregnancy discrimination. They alleged that Avon discriminated against pregnant women and mothers, including nursing mothers who need to pump breast milk while on the job. The suit cited Avon's own language about women's empowerment and commitment to advancement, noting that women may apply to work at the company due to its branding.
