Expanding Peña-Rodriguez V. Colorado To Protect Criminal Defendants From Explicit Gender Animus, Katie Hicks 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Expanding Peña-Rodriguez V. Colorado To Protect Criminal Defendants From Explicit Gender Animus, Katie Hicks

Arkansas Law Review

In 2017, the United States Supreme Court extinguished explicit racial animus expressed during juror deliberations criminal trials. Though courts have repeatedly cloaked the jury’s deliberation room—essentially, “black box”—in impenetrable armor, Miguel Angel Peña-Rodriguez leveraged the American promise of equality, piercing a juror’s animus and bringing it within reach of the Court. His case established that protection of the jury’s black box decision making must yield to an even more fundamental protection: the equal protection of the law and the right to a fair and impartial trial by jury.


Where Is Home? The Challenge Of Finding Safe Housing Via Early Lease Termination For Victims Of Domestic Violence, Charlotte Gerchick 2020 Washington and Lee University School of Law

Where Is Home? The Challenge Of Finding Safe Housing Via Early Lease Termination For Victims Of Domestic Violence, Charlotte Gerchick

Washington and Lee Journal of Civil Rights and Social Justice

This Note addresses the legal recourse of domestic violence victims who are attempting to terminate a lease early for the purpose of escaping domestic violence at home. In March 2013, President Barack Obama signed the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). This version of the Act includes Title VI, which protects victims of domestic violence and stalking. Title VI applies to federally subsidized housing. It allows domestic violence victims to terminate a lease early for the purpose of removing themselves from an abusive household. Title VI also makes it illegal to deny or terminate housing assistance based on ...


Flip It And Reverse It: Examining Reverse Gender Discrimination Claims Brought Under Title Ix, Courtney Joy McMullan 2020 Washington and Lee University School of Law

Flip It And Reverse It: Examining Reverse Gender Discrimination Claims Brought Under Title Ix, Courtney Joy Mcmullan

Washington and Lee Law Review

This Note begins in Part II by discussing the prevalence of campus sexual assault and the ways in which Title IX is used to address it on university campuses. Part III examines reverse Title IX claims by accused students, including the various causes of action and the pleading standards required. Part III also surveys the success of reverse Title IX claims using public pressure on universities to address sexual assault to support their allegations of gender discrimination. Part IV then evaluates the way summary judgment rules and burden-shifting frameworks affect the likelihood of success for reverse Title IX claims. Finally ...

“Girl Riot, Not Gonna Be Quiet”––Riot Grrrl, #Metoo, And The Possibility Of Blowing The Whistle On Sexual Harassment, Kendra Doty 2020 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

“Girl Riot, Not Gonna Be Quiet”––Riot Grrrl, #Metoo, And The Possibility Of Blowing The Whistle On Sexual Harassment, Kendra Doty

Hastings Women’s Law Journal

The 1990s’ Riot Grrrl movement was powerful. Beginning with feminist punk rock bands in Olympia, Washington and spreading throughout the country, girls sparked a revolution. In song lyrics, at group meetings, and in zines, girls formed a community devoted to loudly challenging the constraints society places on women. Part of this project involved flashpoint acts of rebellion—sparks of anger’s flame shooting out as these girls confronted sexual violence and called out perpetrators by name.

Foreshadowing the cascading stories of sexual assault and harassment that erupted in 2017 with #MeToo, the Riot Grrrls warned one another about dangerous people ...

Feminist Action Against Pornography In Japan: Unexpected Success In An Unlikely Place, Caroline Norma, Seiya Morita 2020 Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University

Feminist Action Against Pornography In Japan: Unexpected Success In An Unlikely Place, Caroline Norma, Seiya Morita

Dignity: A Journal on Sexual Exploitation and Violence

In late 2016 a feminist movement against problems of commercial sexual exploitation, and especially issues of coerced pornography filming, arose in Japan. This article describes the history of this movement as it mobilized to combat human rights violations perpetrated by the country’s pornographers. The movement’s success came not spontaneously or haphazardly; in fact, it was orchestrated earlier over a full decade-and-a-half by activists who persevered in researching and highlighting pornography’s harms in a civil environment of hostility, isolation and social derision, even among progressive groups and individuals. The Anti-Pornography and Prostitution Research Group (APP) was particularly prominent ...

A Girl's Right To Bare Arms: An Equal Protection Analysis Of Public-School Dress Codes, Jillian R. Friedmann 2019 Boston College Law School

A Girl's Right To Bare Arms: An Equal Protection Analysis Of Public-School Dress Codes, Jillian R. Friedmann

Boston College Law Review

Public schools throughout the country have faced heavy criticism for instituting dress codes that many perceive to be targeting girls and imposing overly restrictive requirements on their attire. Critics of public-school dress codes often take particular issue with the notion that restrictive dress codes are necessary to prevent classroom distractions. Because public schools are state actors, they must comply with constitutional requirements. Thus, when schools impose different rules on the basis of gender, those rules must comply with the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution. This clause mandates that the government offer an exceedingly persuasive justification for any ...


Pay Now, Play Later?: Youth And Adolescent Collision Sports, Vivian E. Hamilton 2019 William & Mary Law School

Pay Now, Play Later?: Youth And Adolescent Collision Sports, Vivian E. Hamilton

Faculty Publications

The routine and repeated head impacts experienced by athletes in a range of sports can inflict microscopic brain injuries that accumulate over time, even in the absence of concussion. Indeed, cumulative exposure to head impacts—not number of concussions—is the strongest predictor of sports-related degenerative brain disease in later life. The observable symptoms of disease appear years or decades after initial injury and resemble those of other mental-health conditions such as depression and dementia. The years-long interval between earlier, seemingly minor, head impacts and later brain disease has long obscured the connection between the two.

Risk of injury differs ...
