During the 1978-79 Term of the Supreme Court, sex discrimination continued to be an area of active judicial concern, with the Court deciding eight cases alleging unlawful sex discrimination. The purpose of this note is to present the Court's holdings and its rationale in these decisions, to analyze the significance of the decisions in view of the Court's past rulings, and to suggest possible implications for future sex discrimination cases.
