Gender in Focus: Aimee Stephens
Aimee spent nearly 20 years over three decades working in funeral services, a career she discovered while studying to become a Baptist minister. She enjoyed knowing that she was helping people remember their loved ones at peace and received positive feedback from her employer and coworkers.
Aimee says that as early as age five, she knew that she was a girl. In 2008, Aimee started seeing a therapist to discuss and explore her knowledge that she is a woman. By 2012, Aimee made the decision to tell her coworkers that she is a woman. Two weeks after she told her boss in 2013, she was fired. This caused Aimee and her wife Donna to suffer financially and left Aimee without health insurance when her kidneys failed.
The Supreme Court has been asked to consider whether it is gender discrimination under federal civil rights laws to fire someone because that person is transgender. After Aimee was fired, the ACLU assisted Aimee with the filing of a complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC brought legal action against the funeral home for gender discrimination and the ACLU has joined the case to ensure Aimee's interests are protected as the case moves forward. In March of 2018, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Aimee was unlawfully fired and that federal gender discrimination laws protect transgender people.
