Following a brief statement of the legislative history of Title VII, this Article describes how, and then explains why, four important issues were treated as they were by Congress and the courts. The evidence reveals that both institutions of government were influenced by the competing interests, and that the conclusion is drawn that the process of lawmaking is similar in this important way in both courts and the legislature.
