377:140  Civil Rights Act Landmark piece of legislation in the United States   Outlawed racial segregation in: Schools Public places Employment Initially conceived to help African Americans, the bill was amended prior to passage to protect women.  Also created the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)  Once the Act was implemented, its effects were far reaching and had tremendous long-term impacts on the  whole country. It prohibited discrimination in public facilities, in government, and in employment.  It became illegal to compel segregation of the races in schools, housing, or hiring. Powers given to enforce  the bill were initially weak, but were supplemented during later years.
