Katheryn Bradley was quoted in a Seattle Times article titled “Long Before #MeToo, These Women Sued, Won, Strengthened Anti-Harassment Law.” The article tells the story of two Auburn women who helped establish Washington state’s sexual harassment protections after filing their own claims against Georgia-Pacific Corporation in 1985.

… Katheryn Bradley, a Seattle employment lawyer, agrees. “It’s definitely a difficult state for employers — no question about it,” she added.
