This course examines the legal system's treatment of gender through court cases and various theoretical lenses. The aim is to understand the role American jurisprudence plays in shaping society's views and ideas on gender, as well as society's influence on how the legal system frames these gender issues. The course also considers media and society responses to some of the most important decisions rendered in the gender equality arena, while weighing whether the court system is the most effective structure through which to pursue gender equality.
