This 1 unit class will offer an overview of the law of gender equality in the United States spanning from before the Supreme Court recognized heightened scrutiny for gender discrimination through battles being waged today and explore the role of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the 1970s and beyond in changing the relevant legal landscape with respect to gender discrimination and the law. It will begin with an overview of the law on gender discrimination before the 1970s, focus in depth on the important decade spanning 1970-1980, and then take the story forward through the decades that followed, concluding with a window into some of the gender discrimination issues that are being litigated today. Schedule-permitting, we will welcome some guest speakers. Students will be evaluated based on class participation and a series of short reaction papers.
