This course explores contemporary legal response to gender inequality in the U.S., with particular attention to the ways that feminists have tried to use law for social change. Topics may include equal protection under the U.S. constitution, sex and race discrimination on the job, pay equity, sexual harassment (of both men and women), abortion, pornography, rape, domestic violence, women as lawyers, and immigration. We will study debates among feminists over these legal strategies as well as the ways that women’s racial and ethnic identities make a difference in the law.
