|Gender and the Law - 23221 - WGST 251 - 01|
This course explores how the U.S. legal system shapes-- and is shaped by-- gender. Topics include sex discrimination in the workplace and educational institutions, religious freedom from/to discriminate on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation, reproductive rights and responsibilities and gendered violence. Our discussions will reflect the many factors that influence how individuals view and encounter the law, including race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, political outlook, etc. Our academic focus will be on legal analysis, public policy writing and respectful dialogue about emotionally complex topics. There will be many opportunities to practice these skills during the semester.
