Thanks for a long, tire­less fight

The Washington Post - - WASHINGTON FORUM -

I am deeply grate­ful to Deborah Jean Bryant for per­sist­ing in her sex­ual-dis­crim­i­na­tion law­suit against the District for 27 years [“City set­tles case af­ter nearly 3 decades,” Metro, Oct. 7]. Thanks to her and women like her, as well as The Post’s cov­er­age of the is­sue, th­ese cases are fi­nally get­ting the se­ri­ous at­ten­tion they de­serve. Her case might have seemed mod­est com­pared with those against the Har­vey We­in­steins and Roger Aile­ses of the world, but it’s the quo­tid­ian sex­ism that most pro­foundly af­fects most of us. Her vic­tory is my vic­tory, and I give her a stand­ing ova­tion. Kate Holden, Alexan­dria
