Description

This course explores contemporary legal responses 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 sex and race discrimination on the job, pay equity, immigrant women’s labor conditions, regulations of pregnancy and abortion, domestic violence and incarceration, and the role of religious liberty in relation to LGBTQIA+ rights. We will study debates among feminists over these legal strategies, the interaction of law with society and culture, and the ways that the intersection of gender, racial, and ethnic identities make a difference in the application and effects of the law.

Course Requirements:

Grades will be based on the student's score on participation, and three written exams (Exam 1, Exam 2, Final).

Intended Audience:

Students interested in the topic.

Class Format:

This course will include both synchronous and asynchronous elements, but students are generally expected to “attend” the lecture and section at the scheduled times.
