ATLANTA (CNN) -- Four years on, Vandy Beth Glenn still gets choked up thinking about the day she was fired from her perfect job.

The petite brunette recalls exactly what her boss said that October day, how the reasons behind the termination sparked a lawsuit that could have far-reaching implications about how transgender people are treated at work.

She is one of my Facebook friends. I have a feeling her case will lay the groundwork for more advancements in our civil rights. But definitely someone I look up to because despite everything, she never gave up. ^_^
