Considered to be historical due to the numbers of victims involved, the case got a go signal from a federal appeals court. The case involves current & former employees of Wal-Mart in the U.S. Seeing a long process involved ahead, Wal-Mart prepares to demand an appeal.

SAN FRANCISCO -- A federal appeals court Tuesday gave the green light for the largest sex discrimination case in US history to proceed against giant retailer Wal-Mart Stores.

The case is estimated to cover more than 1.5 million women, including current and former employees at Wal-Mart, which is the largest private employer in the United States and the world's biggest retail company

Although the size of this class action is large, mere size does not render a case unmanageable," it added.

This can give way to more cases to be opened up in my own opinion. Sex discrimination in pay & promotion charges against Wal-Mart could just be the beginning. Yet there are other areas of sex bias cases that went unnoticed or just considered to be small in numbers.

There could be further steps to be taken by various organizations like women’s right group or labor union that basically give protection to the rights of the workers.
Although the issue is not new or unique, because of the scale & timing, this could probably cause further “awakening” or awareness.
