WABC, a New York City television station, is being sued by its former weekend sports anchor and reporter who claims she was passed over for promotion because she was a white female. In May 2016, WABC announced that the station’s main sports anchor, a white male, was leaving his position as of July 30. Behnke expressed her interest in the job to Edwards who replied that they would talk about it soon.

Five paramedics with the Chicago Fire Department (CFD) are suing the city seeking redress from its “illegal conduct, including the implementation of proper sexual harassment training and the enforcement of a zero-tolerance policy against workplace violence and sexual harassment so they may continue their careers at CFD and prevent other females from experiencing this trauma.”
