A US jury awarded a new mother $185 million in damages after they found that she had been a victim of pregnancy and gender discrimination.

    First, she 'fell pregnant'? Like in, she 'fell ill'? That itself is wrong on so many levels to refer to a pregnancy as though it were an illness that comes upon a woman.

    Second, what does the last paragraph about cubicle space and creativity have anything to do with this case win?

    The conclusion could have been utilized in summarizing that employers have to ensure that they cannot discriminate against women in the workplace, or they could be faced with such lawsuits.
