*Summary:* In *EEOC, et. al v. R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes*, the district court held that Stephens had been subjected to sex discrimination in violation of Title VII because, consistent with *Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins*, she was subjected to impermissible sex stereotypes. However, the district court then concluded that even though Stephens had been the victim of sex discrimination, the funeral home had a right to terminate her under Religious Freedom Restoration Act (“RFRA”), holding that RFRA protected personal religious beliefs, even when those beliefs resulted in otherwise unlawful sex discrimination.
