Informing Consent: Medical Malpractice And The Criminalization Of Pregnancy, 2018 University of Michigan Law School
Informing Consent: Medical Malpractice And The Criminalization Of Pregnancy, Laura Beth Cohen
Michigan Law Review
Since the early 1990s, jurisdictions around the country have been using civil child abuse laws to penalize women for using illicit drugs during their pregnancies. Using civil child abuse laws in this way infringes on pregnant women’s civil rights and deters them from seeking prenatal care. Child Protective Services agencies are key players in this system. Women often become entangled with the Child Protective Services system through their health care providers. Providers will drug test pregnant women without first alerting them to the potential negative consequences stemming from a positive drug test. Doing so is a breach of these ...

When Courts Run Amuck: A Book Review Of Unequal: How America's Courts Undermine Discrimination Law By Sandra F. Sperino And Suja A. Thomas (Oxford 2017), Theresa M. Beiner
Texas A&M Law Review
In Unequal: How America’s Courts Undermine Discrimination Law (“Unequal”), law professors Sandra F. Sperino and Suja A. Thomas provide a point-by-point analysis of how the federal courts’ interpretations of federal anti-discrimination laws have undermined their efficacy to provide relief to workers whose employers have allegedly engaged in discrimination. The cases’ results are consistently pro-employer, even while the Supreme Court of the United States—a court not known for being particularly pro-plaintiff—has occasionally ruled in favor of plaintiff employees. The authors suggest some reasons for this apparent anti-plaintiff bias among the federal courts, although they do not settle on ...

The Maternal Dilemma, Noya Rimalt
Cornell Law Review
When enacting the FMLA and setting a minimum standard of family leave for all eligible employees, Congress was particularly cautious about attacking the stereotype that all women are responsible for family caregiving. As Justice Rehnquist explained in Nevada v. Hibbs, the goal was to encourage men to assume more caretaking responsibilities at home, thus reducing employers' incentives to discriminate against women by basing hiring and promotion decisions on the stereotype of women as mothers. Indeed, the likely contribution of the gender- neutral parental leave legislation to the promotion of gender equality in the division of care-work at home, hence to ...

Gender Inequality In America: Is It Here To Stay?, Sabrina Scott
Undergraduate Research Symposium
This research discusses how women and the LGBTQ’s rights and discourse with the power structure,the United States, has evolved throughout the 20th and 21st century. There were numerous milestones accomplished during the 21st century, especially during the Obama era, such as legalization of gay marriage and right to free birth control and reproductive care for women is just to name a few. Once the Trump Administration had entered the White House on January 20, 2016, women and the gender minorities’ futures took a bleak turn. President Trump and radical social conservatives have been pushing to roll back their ...
The Solid South: The Suffrage Campaign Revisited, 2018 Western Kentucky University
The Solid South: The Suffrage Campaign Revisited, Abby Lorraine Crenshaw
Masters Theses & Specialist Projects
This examination of the southern suffrage campaign focuses the movement through the eyes of three prominent southern women within the political movement: Kate Gordon, Sue Shelton White, and Josephine Pearson. The merged National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) planned and organized a focus on the South during the second half of the suffrage campaign, which presented new challenges. The Nineteenth Amendment passed through Congress in 1918 and consequently set the stage for a raging political battle between suffragists and anti-suffragists. The suffrage campaign prompted women to question how the political platform of suffrage should be addressed. Women argued over the ...
Personhood Seeking New Life With Republican Control, 2018 Mississippi College School of Law
Personhood Seeking New Life With Republican Control, Jonathan F. Will, I. Glenn Cohen, Eli Y. Adashi
Indiana Law Journal
Just three days prior to the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States, Representative Jody B. Hice (R-GA) introduced the Sanctity of Human Life Act (H.R. 586), which, if enacted, would provide that the rights associated with legal personhood begin at fertilization. Then, in October 2017, the Department of Health and Human Services released its draft strategic plan, which identifies a core policy of protecting Americans at every stage of life, beginning at conception. While often touted as a means to outlaw abortion, protecting the “lives” of single-celled zygotes may also have implications for the ...
The Normalization Of Prostitution In Switzerland: The Origin Of Policies, 2018 University of Helsinki
The Normalization Of Prostitution In Switzerland: The Origin Of Policies, Corinne Isler, Marjut Jyrkinen
Dignity: A Journal on Sexual Exploitation and Violence
In this article, we examine how socio-political actors frame prostitution and problems attached to the phenomenon and what types of policies they suggest. The sex trade in Switzerland has been tolerated since 1942, and prostitution is protected under the economic freedom guaranteed by the Swiss constitution. Any critique of prostitution is viewed as counterproductive, claimed to be rooted in old-fashioned ideas about sexuality and thought to worsen the situation for women who sell sex. The role of sex buyers is largely obscured, and the presumed right to buy sex remains unquestioned.
The Heat Of Passion And Blameworthy Reasons To Be Angry, 2018 Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Cleveland State University
The Heat Of Passion And Blameworthy Reasons To Be Angry, Jonathan Witmer-Rich
Law Faculty Articles and Essays
This article seeks to resolve a longstanding conceptual puzzle plaguing the "heat of passion" doctrine--how courts should determine which features, beliefs, or characteristics of a defendant are properly relevant to assessing whether the defendant was sufficiently provoked, and which of those features should be disregarded. This article argues that provocation is not adequate if the reason the defendant became extremely angry is due to some blameworthy belief or attribute of the defendant. A belief is blameworthy if it contradicts the fundamental values of the political community. The blameworthiness principle distinguishes those aspects of the defendant that cannot form a basis ...

Circumventing Congress's Comprehensive Schemes: The Third Circuit Allows Employees Of Educational Institutions To Bypass Title Vii And Bring Claims Under Title Ix In Doe V. Mercy Catholic Medical Center, 2018 Boston College Law School
Circumventing Congress's Comprehensive Schemes: The Third Circuit Allows Employees Of Educational Institutions To Bypass Title Vii And Bring Claims Under Title Ix In Doe V. Mercy Catholic Medical Center, Lauren Stewart
Boston College Law Review
Five of the U.S. Courts of Appeals are currently split as to whether employees bringing claims of sex-based employment discrimination are able to use either Title VII or Title IX of the Civil Rights Act as avenues of relief where both statutes are concurrently applicable. On March 3, 2017, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, in Doe v. Mercy Catholic Medical Center, became the most recent circuit to address this issue. Joining the First and Fourth Circuits, the Third Circuit held that the concurrent applicability of Title VII and Title IX did not preclude the ...
Mulieris Dignitatem, Ephesians 5, And Domestic Violence, 2018 Concordia University School of Law
Mulieris Dignitatem, Ephesians 5, And Domestic Violence, Joseph M. Isanga
This Article considers the contribution of Pope John Paul II’s apostolic letter On the Dignity and Vocation of Women to the deeper understanding of women’s dignity as it relates to the process of articulating and rearticulating international women’s rights, with particular attention on domestic violence.2 This letter, Mulieris Dignitatem, brings together some of the Catholic Church’s most important teachings on gender equality. This Article delineates norms articulated in Mulieris Dignitatem that can inform international standards regarding the protection of women from domestic violence. To date there are no legally binding global human rights instruments that ...
Foundations Of Human Rights And Development: A Critique Of African Human Rights Instruments, 2018 Concordia University School of Law
Foundations Of Human Rights And Development: A Critique Of African Human Rights Instruments, Joseph M. Isanga
This Article argues that, of the contemporary human rights theories, sustainable African development necessitates grounding human rights in complete alignment with the broader perspective of natural law theory, as opposed to narrower perspectives such as utilitarian, positivist, and kindred theories.3 Part I presents pertinent philosophical theories and modes of analysis in conjunction with general international legal jurisprudence. Part II then uses this philosophical analysis to examine specific African human rights instruments and jurisprudence. Part III considers African traditional human rights conceptions. Part IV recommends a natural law foundation for African development. [excerpt]
Title Vii Is Not The Only Cure For Employment Discrimination: The Implications Of Doe V. Mercy Catholic Medical Center In Expanding Claims For Medical Residents Under Title Ix, 2018 Boston College Law School
Title Vii Is Not The Only Cure For Employment Discrimination: The Implications Of Doe V. Mercy Catholic Medical Center In Expanding Claims For Medical Residents Under Title Ix, Amy-Lee Goodman
Boston College Law Review
In March 2017, in Doe v. Mercy Catholic Medical Center, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit established that medical residents, who function as both students and as employees of a hospital, could bring private causes of action for sex discrimination under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. This ruling revived a long-standing split amongst the Circuits, with the Third Circuit parting company from the Fifth and Seventh Circuits and aligning with the First and Fourth Circuits, which hold Title VII’s carefully crafted administrative remedial procedure does not pre-empt claims under Title IX. This ...
Some Form Of Punishment: Penalizing Women For Abortion, 2018 College of William & Mary Law School
Some Form Of Punishment: Penalizing Women For Abortion, Mary Ziegler
William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal
In 2016, Donald Trump ignited a political firestorm when he suggested that women should be punished for having abortions. Although he backtracked, Trump’s misstep launched a debate about whether women have been or should be punished for having abortions. At the same time, Trump’s comments revealed that punishing women has become far more than an abstraction. In 2016, Indiana resident Purvi Patel became just the most recent visible example when she was sentenced to twenty years for feticide and child neglect for inducing an abortion.
But in spite of the furor created by Trump’s comment and Patel ...
