GOVT187 CM - Women and the Law

The purpose of this course is to explore whether and how gender matters in American law, and to examine the constitutional and statutory legal doctrines that apply in sex discrimination claims. More specifically, the course will (a) examine the ways gender has affected citizenship status; (b) address major constitutional themes that are invoked in sex discrimination cases and their evolution across time; and (c) consider how alternative schools of legal thought address these issues. Particular attention will be paid to employment law, reproductive rights, family law, and criminal law.
