Fighting Injustice from Childhood through Old Age

As a ten-year-old girl in 1930, June Stephenson tried to “beat city hall” for the girls’ share of city recreation funds earmarked for boys.

From childhood through old age, she has fought to right the wrongs of injustice. Neither a rabble-rouser nor an activist, she quietly, persistently, and effectively meets injustice head-on, and only as a last resort uses the courts.

As a result of her law suit against Sears, Sears was required to change their credit policies for divorced women. Her discrimination suit against The Napa Valley Unified School District resulted in the district’s promoting more women to administrative positions than ever before. And her case against The Wild Horse Valley Ranch in Napa, California, forced that large ranch to reopen an easement it had illegally closed. Through published letters she admonishes lawmakers to obey the Constitution.

This is a story that resonates with anyone who resents injustice and questions how to right a wrong.
