Employment

Plank 10 of the National Plan of Action directed the “vigorous and expeditious” enforcement of all laws, executive orders, and regulations prohibiting sex discrimination in employment. It further encouraged greater opportunity for women in professional, managerial, and technical jobs, drawing attention to the particular needs of women of color. Commissioner Dorothy Haener, a representative of United Auto Workers, moved the resolution to the floor on November 19. Delegates promptly adopted the plank as the arena grew tense in anticipation of the next resolution regarding the Equal Rights Amendment.
