Call Number: KF3467.A7 M33 2003
This law school casebook maps the legal doctrine of sex equality using materials drawn from theory, social science, history, and comparative law. Cases on racism, work, education, athletics, and pregnancy are examined in detail. A chapter titled Sex, Race and Nation expands on the connections between racism and sexism raised throughout. The chapter titled Burdens of Proof equips the litigator with basic technical skills. Also explored are issues that have received less attention, including the law of the family, rape, abortion, prostitution, and pornography. The argument that gay and lesbian rights are sex equality rights is advanced. Sexual harassment in employment and education are discussed in depth.
