WENGLER v. DRUGGISTS MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY 446 U.S. 142 (1980)
Missouri's workers' compensation law provided death benefits to all widows but only to widowers who proved actual dependence on their wives or incapacity to earn a living. The Supreme Court, 8–1, held this sex discrimination invalid, following craig v. boren (1976) and califano v. goldfarb (1977).
