The response was that I could file harrassment against that instructor. I thought what would that do other than add to the bad reputation that I have due to the continuous attempts of trying to fight for equality and defend myself from discrimination. What's your opinion? Thank you in advance.

The website gives basic information on typical questions that students have about health during pregnancy; university related issues such as effects of time-off on scholarships, student housing issues with a new baby, etc.; financial aid; legal aid; community assistance programs for health and social needs; student rights protected by federal and state laws; etc. This website was developed as a multi-departmental effort with representatives from each of the administrative departments within the university as well as our nursing maternal-child faculty members and our faculty members from our center for women's studies.
