Name: Pamela Price
Bio: Pamela Price opened her own civil litigation firm in 1991, and has been a tireless advocate against sex- and race-based discrimination. Price successfully sued the California Department of Corrections (CDC) on behalf of victims of sexual harassment; and, in 2004, due largely to Price’s efforts, the CDC implemented new policies and regulations aimed at protecting female employees from sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Price holds a B.A. in Political Science from Yale College, as well as a J.D. and an M.A. in Jurisprudence and Social Policy from U.C. Berkeley School of Law.
Price, who was active in the civil rights movement, was arrested in 1968 at the age of 13 during a demonstration. In 2002, she became one of the very few Black women to ever argue in front of the United States Supreme Court.
