Borders (En)Gendered: Normativities, Latinas, And A Latcrit Paradigm, Berta E. Hernández-Truyol Oct 1997

Borders (En)Gendered: Normativities, Latinas, And A Latcrit Paradigm, Berta E. Hernández-Truyol

UF Law Faculty Publications

This Essay, developed in a prologue and three parts, adopts Latinas'/os' world traveling as a metaphor for Latina/o multidimensionality and as a springboard for LatCrit theorizing. The Prologue is a brief diary entry of unfin de semana viajando mundos - a weekend of actual traveling between New York and Miami; law and familia; profesora and learner; colleague and hija; español and English; norte y sur; normativa and other; indigenous and alien. This abbreviated record of a Latina's life reveals, exposes, and unveils Latinas'/os' daily crossdressing simply by virtue of their latinidad. This Prologue thus serves as a ...

Testing Testing, Carl E. Schneider Jul 1997

Testing Testing, Carl E. Schneider

Articles

Last year, Congress passed the Ryan White Care Act Amendments of 1996. The amendments authorize ten million dollars for each fiscal year from 1996 through 2000 for counseling pregnant women on HIV disease, for "outreach efforts to pregnant women at high risk of HN who are not currently receiving prenatal care," and for voluntary testing for pregnant women. The amendments compromise a central question: whether prenatal and neonatal AIDS testing should be compelled. The compromise is complex. The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is instructed to establish a system for states to use to discover and ...

A Feminist View Of American Elder Law, Rebecca Korzec Apr 1997

A Feminist View Of American Elder Law, Rebecca Korzec

All Faculty Scholarship

ANY discussion of contemporary American elder law must consider gender issues. A number of gender concerns are readily discernible, including workplace and family issues. Significantly, sex-based disparities are increasing within the elderly population. In turn, these disparities exacerbate problems of fairness and equity in meeting intergenerational family needs and expectations.

As with childrearing, in contemporary American society, the major caregiving responsibility for the growing number of frail elderly falls largely on women rather than men. With an increasing number of women working outside the family home, the intersection of work and family issues is receiving considerable attention both in academic ...

Islam, Law And Custom: Redefining Muslim Women's Rights, Azizah Y. Al-Hibri Jan 1997

Islam, Law And Custom: Redefining Muslim Women's Rights, Azizah Y. Al-Hibri

Law Faculty Publications

In discussing personal status codes, the article focuses on three specific issues: the right of a woman to contract her own marriage, the duty of the wife to obey her husband, and the right of the wife to initiate divorce. There are several good reasons for focusing on these issues. Foremost among them is the fact that they have been and continue to be of great concern to Muslim women. Another reason is that despite their diverse subject matter, these three issues are based on the same jurisprudential foundation. Hence, our discussion and critical analysis of that foundation will have ...

Qur'anic Foundations Of The Rights Of Muslim Women In The Twenty-First Century, Azizah Y. Al-Hibri Jan 1997

Qur'anic Foundations Of The Rights Of Muslim Women In The Twenty-First Century, Azizah Y. Al-Hibri

Law Faculty Publications

The crisis of modernity in Islamic societies, generally, and of Muslim women's rights, specifically, has led some individuals to wonder whether Islam has become outdated. After all, the Qur'an was revealed over fourteen hundred years ago to an illiterate man in the Arabian peninsula. How relevant could that revelation be today in a highly technological global village at the dawn of the twenty-first century?

This article addresses this issue by starting from the premise that the Qur'an was revealed for all people, for all times and for all places. Consequently, it is as relevant today to the ...


A Critique Of Personal Status Codes In Selected Arab Countries, Azizah Y. Al-Hibri Jan 1997

A Critique Of Personal Status Codes In Selected Arab Countries, Azizah Y. Al-Hibri

Law Faculty Publications

It is quite disconcerting to follow the relatively recent but unrelenting trend among some Western writers and human rights activists to criticize Islamic law, as embodied in the various personal status codes in Muslim countries, for being discriminatory, patriarchal and out of touch with world opinion. In fact, some Western writers have even resorted to excerpting passages from the Qur'an to further illustrate their point, while others have called for international solutions to the problem.

Enhancing The Attractiveness Of Research To Female Faculty, Ronald G. Ehrenberg Jan 1997

Enhancing The Attractiveness Of Research To Female Faculty, Ronald G. Ehrenberg

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] CSWEP has long been concerned about the underrepresentation of women in faculty positions at major research universities. I have been charged by the committee with enumerating a set of policies that might enhance the attractiveness of research universities to female faculty. After presenting some data that suggest the magnitude of the underrepresentation problem, I do so below. In each case, I sketch the pros and cons of the policy. Although the focus is on increasing the attractiveness of research universities to female faculty, many of the policies would increase the attractiveness of academic careers per se to new female ...

Unexpected Connections: Considering Employees' Personal Lives Can Revitalize Your Business, Lotte Bailyn, Joyce K. Fletcher, Doborah Kolb Jan 1997

Unexpected Connections: Considering Employees' Personal Lives Can Revitalize Your Business, Lotte Bailyn, Joyce K. Fletcher, Doborah Kolb

ADVANCE Library Collection

Efforts to integrate work and personal life affect people at all organizational levels. Traditional approaches seem to exacerbate the problem by pitting employee and business goals against each other. The authors' approach to integration is based on linking personal lives and work in an opportunity to innovate and change. In a research project, Bailyn et al. worked with a company known for leading-edge employee benefits to find out why employees were not fully using those benefits. At each site, they collaborated to help employees better integrate work with personal lives and help the site meet its business goals. They helped ...


Working On The "Mommy-Track": Motherhood And Women Lawyers, Rebecca Korzec Jan 1997

Working On The "Mommy-Track": Motherhood And Women Lawyers, Rebecca Korzec

All Faculty Scholarship

This Article examines the effects of motherhood on the careers of women lawyers and the efficacy of the 'mommy-track' as a means of ameliorating these effects. Part I examines the current position of women in the legal profession. Part II examines the nature of 'motherhood' and the risk/benefit function of 'mommy-tracking.' Part III analyzes the 'mommy-track' from the perspective of feminist jurisprudence. Finally, Part IV examines issues related to workplace transformation. It is the position of this paper that 'mommy-tracking' reinforces undesirable stereotypes. Ironically, this apparent 'solution' actually forestalls the transformations, at home and at work, which could enable ...


The Economics Of Home Production, Joni Hersch Jan 1997

The Economics Of Home Production, Joni Hersch

Vanderbilt Law School Faculty Publications

The composition of the labor force has changed dramatically since 1960. In 1960, only one-third of the labor force participants were female. However, since the 1960s, the labor force rates of men have declined, from 83.3% to 75% as of 1995, while the participation rate for women has surged, from 37.7% in 1960 to 58.9% in 1995.1 The combination of rising labor force participation rates for women and falling rates for men has resulted in a work force that is approaching equal representation of each gender. However, the picture at home indicates a far greater gender ...
