I find it sad that in the year 2015, women still get fired for being pregnant:

Juarez’s complaint also claimed that the company has a “glass ceiling” that keeps women from getting promoted. Just 10 of the 98 stores in the San Diego area where she worked had female managers. And at trial, a former district manager testified that a vice president reprimanded him for having so many women in management positions, telling him, “What are we running here, a boutique? Get rid of those women.” Another former district manager testified that at a meeting, executives rejoiced that a previous settlement requiring it to promote women and track it had expired, offering a district manager a promotion if he fired all the women in his stores.
