Unprincipled Exclusions: The Struggle To Achieve Judicial And Legislative Equality For Transgender People, Paisley Currah, Shannon Minter

William & Mary Journal of Race, Gender, and Social Justice

This Article examines recent efforts to enact civil rights statutes for transgender people in the United States. Part I provides an overview of the largely negative case law on the issue of whether transgender people are protected under existing sex, sexual orientation or disability discrimination laws. This context is provided, in part, to explain why transgender rights advocates have turned to the legislative branches of government to secure basic civil rights protections. Part II describes the initial successes that have been achieved as a result of this new focus on political activism and legislation. Part III examines the actual statutory ...

Affirmative Actions, William W. Van Alstyne Oct 2000

Affirmative Actions, William W. Van Alstyne

Faculty Publications

Liberals and progressives have been slow to realize that their preferred vocabulary has been hijacked and that when they respond to once hallowed phrases they are responding to a ghost now animated by a new machme. The point is not a small one, for in any debate, especially one fought in the arena of public opinion, the battle is won not by knock-down arguments but by the party that succeeds in placing its own spin on the terms presiding over the discussion.

Book Review Of Communists On Campus: Race, Politics, And The Public University In Sixties North Carolina, William W. Van Alstyne Jul 2000

Book Review Of Communists On Campus: Race, Politics, And The Public University In Sixties North Carolina, William W. Van Alstyne

Popular Media

This review finds William Billingsley's work to be a detailed and well-organized account of the North Carolina speaker's ban. The book avoids over-generalization and a lack of focus by honing in on this one particular story and examining it in great detail, rather than trying to provide a broad overview of similar situations across the country.

The Absolution Of Reynolds: The Constitutionality Of Religious Polygamy, Todd M. Gillett Feb 2000

The Absolution Of Reynolds: The Constitutionality Of Religious Polygamy, Todd M. Gillett

William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal

The ancient practice of polygamy became prevalent in parts of the United States in the mid-nineteenth century, when the Mormon Church canonized the doctrine of polygamy and encouraged its practice among its members. Today, there are nearly 40, 000 polygamists in the United States, mostly living in Utah. The Supreme Court has ruled on polygamy several times in decisions and dicta, each time finding it to be unconstitutional within the United States. In Reynolds v. United States, a 1878 decision upholding a statute that criminalized polygamy, the Court introduced the belief/action distinction that controls religious First Amendment doctrine today ...


The Truth About Women's Rights, Janet Benshoof Feb 2000

The Truth About Women's Rights, Janet Benshoof

William & Mary Journal of Race, Gender, and Social Justice

In their article, The Rise and Fall of Women's Rights: Have Sexuality and Reproductive Freedom Forfeited Victory?, the authors Lynne Marie Kohm and Colleen Holmes launch a wide-ranging attack on women's reproductive freedoms and target not only myself but topics as diverse as gay and lesbian rights, the Vagina Monologues, and sexual freedom (without guilt or shame) for women.

This Essay is not meant to be a comprehensive response to the article. Rather, this Essay will counter Kohm's and Holmes's asserted premise-that fighting for reproductive freedoms has left feminists without the strength to fight for other ...
