Elizabeth Warren's onetime family home in Oklahoma City, Monday, Dec. 9, 2019. Warren lived in this home on NW 25th Street in Oklahoma City from when the future Massachusetts senator and Democratic presidential candidate was 11 until she graduated from high school at 16 in 1964. Warren has campaigned for the White House for nearly a year telling audiences nationwide that she grew up on "ragged edge of the middle class" and that her mother dramatically secured a minimum wage job at a nearby Sears at age 50 that kept the family from losing its home after her father had a heart attack -- but her emotional story omits some important context and nuance about her family's financial situation and her mother's employment.

For 41 years, federal law has banned pregnancy discrimination in the workplace. But the stories tumbling out this week show it’s far from eradicated.

Police officers, academics, fast food workers, lawyers, flight attendants and others say they hid pregnancies on the job or during interviews, faced demotion or demeaning comments and were even fired after revealing a pregnancy.(AP Photo/Ringo H.W.
