UMD - Criminology & Criminal Justice GVPT 439W SG91 Women, Gender, and Law 2 W 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Prerequisites

none

Description

The course examines the struggle in America for gender equality and civil rights by looking at landmark U.S. Supreme Court cases. While most of the cases came out of the women’s rights movement, these cases have had broad impact across gender, race, and ethnic divides in American society. The course explores the historical, legal, and social contexts of the key cases and investigates the legal reasoning and constitutional bases of arguments that supported the Court’s decisions, as well as those which opposed the Court’s decisions. The course also looks forward at emerging, new issues in gender equality that might ultimately find their way to the Supreme Court. The course further introduces students to the “case method,” the most prevalent teaching and learning method used by law schools. Students will be required to read Supreme Court decisions and the U.S. Constitution in some detail, and, will learn about key constitutional law principles and concepts as we study each case.

The cases selected represent a diversity of backgrounds as well, because the stories behind the cases are those of women and men of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations and degrees of wealth. Many of the stories are those of so-called “ordinary” people who were not interested in creating a fuss, or achieving notoriety, or in making history. But they did make history and changed our society forever in the process.
