Gender and the Law - 32652 - WGST 251 - 01
This course explores how concepts of masculinity and femininity shape the U.S. legal system. We also examine other factors that influence how individuals view and encounter the law (race, religion, political outlook, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic status, etc.). Specific topics include the gender binary, sex discrimination in the workplace and educational institutions, intimate partner violence, reproductive justice, and marriage. Our academic focus is 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. No prior legal knowledge is required. Please note: students who are on the waitlist must show up to the first class to be eligible for a spot in the class. As of 8/25, the waitlist is closed and it requires the permission of the instructor.
