Caroline Fredrickson tackles the subject new book Under the Bus: How Working Women Are Being Run Over, which comes out this month from The New Press. 

Fredrickson is the president of the American Constitution Society and previously served as the director for the ACLU’s Washington legislative office and as general counsel and legal director for NARAL Pro-Choice America. Fredrickson’s legal background and experience with drafting labor reform bills results in an insightful book on the subject with an insider's perspective into how the process works.
