LAW A 553 Feminist Jurisprudence Seminar

Credits: 4

This seminar examines the law’s contribution to the historical and current inequality of the sexes, as well as the law’s contribution to remedying that inequality. Accordingly, we will consider cases and statutes as instruments of oppression and as instruments of change. And we will consider the various feminist approaches (liberal, cultural, radical) to these problems, including both theoretical frames and strategic implications. Among the substantive topics to be covered are: constitutional equality, female sexuality, violence against women, women and family.
