Can you imagine being so distressed by your treatment at work that you set up a political party to combat it? That’s exactly what led Catherine Mayer to found the Women’s Equality Party and to take her former employer to court.

With the support of her attorney, Dr Ann Olivarius, Catherine Mayer challenged her employer following what she claimed was an unfair dismissal. Although the proceedings took place in the US, victims of discrimination and organisations who will inevitably have to deal with allegations of discrimination can learn much from her story.
