Sexual Violence As An Occupational Hazard & Condition Of Confinement In The Closed Institutional Systems Of The Military And Detention, Hannah Brenner, Kathleen Darcy, Sheryl Kubiak 2017 Pepperdine University

Sexual Violence As An Occupational Hazard & Condition Of Confinement In The Closed Institutional Systems Of The Military And Detention, Hannah Brenner, Kathleen Darcy, Sheryl Kubiak

Pepperdine Law Review

Women in the military are more likely to be raped by other service members than to be killed in combat. Female prisoners internalize rape by corrections officers as an inherent part of their sentence. Immigrants held in detention fearing deportation or other legal action endure rape to avoid compromising their cases. This Article draws parallels among closed institutional systems of prisons, immigration detention, and the military. The closed nature of these systems creates an environment where sexual victimization occurs in isolation, often without knowledge of or intervention by those on the outside, and the internal processes for addressing this victimization ...


Criminalizing Pregnancy, Cortney E. Lollar 2017 University of Kentucky College of Law

Criminalizing Pregnancy, Cortney E. Lollar

Cortney Lollar

The state of Tennessee arrested a woman two days after she gave birth and charged her with assault of her newborn child based on her use of narcotics during her pregnancy. Tennessee's 2014 assault statute was the first to explicitly criminalize the use of drugs by a pregnant woman. But this law, along with others like it being considered by legislatures across the country, is only the most recent manifestation of a long history of using criminal law to punish poor mothers and mothers of color for their behavior while pregnant. The purported motivation for such laws is the ...

From Queen Bees And Wannabes To Worker Bees: Why Gender Considerations Should Inform The Emerging Law Of Workplace Bullying, Kerri Lynn Stone 2017 Florida International University College of Law

From Queen Bees And Wannabes To Worker Bees: Why Gender Considerations Should Inform The Emerging Law Of Workplace Bullying, Kerri Lynn Stone

Kerri Stone

This Article submits that the documented phenomenon of workplace bullying operates to stymie the retention and advancement of women in the workplace Research documented in books like Queen Bees and Wannabes shows that as early as the schoolyard, males and females tend to socialize differently, engage in and resolve conflict with peers differently, and absorb bullying behavior differently. Girls often believe or are taught to believe that direct conflict or confrontation is unpalatable and tend to employ more passive aggressive means of engagement with foes. They often internalize and repress feelings that boys are more likely to express. Viewing the ...


Tragedy, Outrage & Reform: Crimes That Changed Our World: 1983 – Thurman Beating - Domestic Violence, Paul H. Robinson, Sarah M. Robinson 2017 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Tragedy, Outrage & Reform: Crimes That Changed Our World: 1983 – Thurman Beating - Domestic Violence, Paul H. Robinson, Sarah M. Robinson

Faculty Scholarship

Can a crime make our world better? Crimes are the worst of humanity’s wrongs but, oddly, they sometimes do more than anything else to improve our lives. As it turns out, it is often the outrageousness itself that does the work. Ordinary crimes are accepted as the background noise of our everyday existence but some crimes make people stop and take notice – because they are so outrageous, or so curious, or so heart-wrenching. These “trigger crimes” are the cases that this book is about.

They offer some incredible stories about how people, good and bad, change the world around ...


Achieving Equality For Women In Labour And Employment – A Comparative Study Of Colombia And Canada, Lina M. Hernandez 2017 The University of Western Ontario

Achieving Equality For Women In Labour And Employment – A Comparative Study Of Colombia And Canada, Lina M. Hernandez

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The primary focus of this thesis is to analyze and compare the legal systems enacted to protect working women in Colombia and Canada. This thesis focuses on: the protection of maternity and parental rights; the principle of equal pay for work of equal value; and discrimination in employment (including harassment). This research argues that the legislative and judicial changes made in each country to protect working women have not led to substantive equality for working women. This thesis also argues that there is a gap between international and national standards, thus a law reform is appropriate and needed in both ...

The Tampon Tax: Sales Tax, Menstrual Hygiene Products, And Necessity Exemptions, Jennifer Bennett 2017 University of Missouri School of Law

The Tampon Tax: Sales Tax, Menstrual Hygiene Products, And Necessity Exemptions, Jennifer Bennett

The Business, Entrepreneurship & Tax Law Review

Women in the United States face many economic obstacles that their male counterparts do not. Many of these obstacles – including the wage gap, economic issues related to childbearing, and implicit bias in the workplace, among others – are the result of multiple political, social, and cultural factors, making them hard to eliminate. The tampon tax is comparatively simple to take on: if state legislatures decide to remove it, women will no longer have to pay it. The term “tampon tax” refers to how the majority of states impose a general sales tax on tampons, pads, reusable menstrual cups, and other menstrual ...


Bystander Intervention Policies For Campus Sexual Assault Should Be Framed As Civil Rights Programs, And Made Broadly Applicable To All Protected Class Offenses, Wendy J. Murphy 2017 New England Law Boston

Bystander Intervention Policies For Campus Sexual Assault Should Be Framed As Civil Rights Programs, And Made Broadly Applicable To All Protected Class Offenses, Wendy J. Murphy

Utah Law Review

The overarching goal of any campus sexual assault prevention program should be to reduce incidence rates. BIPs may accomplish this result more effectively than other programs because they engage students to become personally involved in actual incidents, thus directly influencing the way students think and feel about sexual assault. By framing BIPs as civil rights programs applicable to all protected class categories, schools ensure that students understand why intervening is appropriate, and underscores that everyone has a stake in promoting and protecting the safety and full equality of all women and girls on every campus.


Dissenting From History: The False Narratives Of The Obergefell Dissents, Christopher R. Leslie 2017 University of California - Irvine

Dissenting From History: The False Narratives Of The Obergefell Dissents, Christopher R. Leslie

Indiana Law Journal

According to a quote attributed to numerous philosophers and political leaders, “History is written by victors.”1 In the legal battle over same-sex marriage, those opposed to marriage equality have attempted to disprove this age-old adage. In response to the majority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges—which held that state laws banning same-sex marriage violate the Fourteenth Amendment—each of the four dissenting Justices issued his own dissenting opinion. Every one of these dissents misrepresented the circumstances and precedent leading up to the Obergefell decision. Collectively, the Obergefell dissenters have valiantly tried to rewrite America’s legal, constitutional, and social ...

What Prohibition Teaches About Guns And Abortion: How Alcohol Can Save Individual Rights, Jesse D.H. Snyder 2017 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

What Prohibition Teaches About Guns And Abortion: How Alcohol Can Save Individual Rights, Jesse D.H. Snyder

Hastings Women’s Law Journal

The Supreme Court has made numerous decisions regarding the constitutionality of abortion and gun ownership. Both highly cherished individual rights are systematically and consistently litigated. This article will explore how the documented history of Prohibition can be used to save both abortion and gun rights by examining how individual rights impact society as a whole. In addition, this article will examine the impact a oncerecognized right has when it is no longer in place. Prohibition can be used as a mechanism to ensure ongoing protections of these cherished individual rights.


Sex Panic And Videotape, Stephan Ferris 2017 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Sex Panic And Videotape, Stephan Ferris

Hastings Women’s Law Journal

In the November 2016 election, Californians voted on Proposition 60— a measure unfairly targeting the LGBT community’s production of pornography by mandating condoms in all adult entertainment production. This article examines the defeat of this proposed legislation and argues that similar legislation and policies are assimilationist practices that attack sexual autonomy and expression. This note will examine the scientific history and advancements of the HIV virus and how the AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s role in advancing a condom-only agenda, is out of touch with the scientific community.


Sexual Hostility A Mile High, Michelle L.D. Hanlon 2017 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Sexual Hostility A Mile High, Michelle L.D. Hanlon

Hastings Women’s Law Journal

Flight attendants have spent the past few decades eradicating the “pinup” girl persona that is often associated with their profession. This sexualized image has created a dangerous and harassing workplace environment for female flight attendants. This article addresses how the flight cabin is uniquely hostile workplace and how the International Civil Aviation Organization needs to take action to combat the gender discrimination and sexual harassment too common in this industry.


Conflicting Definitions Of Sexual Assault And Consent: The Ramifications Of Title Ix Male Gender Discrimination Claims Against College Campuses, Tyra Singleton 2017 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Conflicting Definitions Of Sexual Assault And Consent: The Ramifications Of Title Ix Male Gender Discrimination Claims Against College Campuses, Tyra Singleton

Hastings Women’s Law Journal

Sexual assault is pervasive on college campuses across the country. Title IX mandates that school’s receiving federal funding protect student victims of sexual assault. Some campuses have gone further than the Title IX requirements and have created internal policies that are stacked against the accused and potentially reach the level of violating the accused’s constitutional rights. This note examines how Title IX has influenced academia and how unjust campus tribunals have caused accused male students to seek redress in federal courts for gender discrimination. This note will also examine the racial implications of Title IX and consider how ...
