Feminist Judging Matters: How Feminist Theory And Methods Affect The Process Of Judgment, Bridget J. Crawford 2018 Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University

Feminist Judging Matters: How Feminist Theory And Methods Affect The Process Of Judgment, Bridget J. Crawford

Pace Law Faculty Publications

The word “feminism” means different things to its many supporters (and undoubtedly, to its detractors). For some, it refers to the historic struggle: first to realize the right of women to vote and then to eliminate explicit discrimination against women from the nation's laws. For others, it is a political movement, the purpose of which is to raise awareness about and to overcome past and present oppression faced by women. For still others, it is a philosophy--a system of thought--and a community of belief centering on attaining political, social, and economic equality for women, men, and people of any ...

Decriminalization Of Prostitution: The Soros Effect, Jody Raphael 2018 University of Rhode Island

Decriminalization Of Prostitution: The Soros Effect, Jody Raphael

Dignity: A Journal on Sexual Exploitation and Violence

This article explores the activities of George Soros and his charitable organization, Open Society Foundations (OSF), in advocating for the full decriminalization of the sex trade industry. Research finds that OSF spends only a small amount of money on grass roots “sex worker” groups around the world advocating for full decriminalization, but the foundation awards larger amounts of funds to large human rights groups whose reports and policies have a wider reach. OSF’s rationale for full decriminalization fails to consider violence and coercion in the sex trade industry, misreads research, and does not include research from venues where full ...

Feminist Judging Matters: How Feminist Theory And Methods Affect The Process Of Judgment, Linda L. Berger, Bridget J. Crawford, Kathryn M. Stanchi 2018 University of Nevada, Las Vegas -- William S. Boyd School of Law

Feminist Judging Matters: How Feminist Theory And Methods Affect The Process Of Judgment, Linda L. Berger, Bridget J. Crawford, Kathryn M. Stanchi

Scholarly Works

Professor Linda Berger rejoins her Feminist Judgments: Rewritten Opinions of the United States Supreme Court coauthors in this essay presenting feminism as the foundation for a developing form of rich, complex, and practical legal scholarship-the lens and the means through which we may approach and resolve many legal problems. First, this essay explores the intellectual foundations of feminist legal theory and situates the United States and international feminist judgments projects within that scholarly tradition. It next considers how the feminist judgments projects move beyond traditional academic scholarship to bridge the gap between the real-world practice of law and feminist theory ...


Draft Of A Letter Of Recommendation To The Honorable Alex Kozinski, Which I Guess I'M Not Going To Send Now, Yxta Maya Murray 2018 Loyola Law School

Draft Of A Letter Of Recommendation To The Honorable Alex Kozinski, Which I Guess I'M Not Going To Send Now, Yxta Maya Murray

Michigan Journal of Gender and Law

This legal-literary essay engages the current social and jurisprudential moment, encapsulated by the hashtag #metoo. It focuses on the allegations, made in the first week of December 2017, that Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Alex Kozinski verbally sexually harassed former law clerks Emily Murphy and Heidi Bond. I wrote the lioness’s share of the piece during December 10–11—that is, in the days before news outlets reported that other women complained of Kozinski touching them on the thigh or breast while propositioning them for sex or discussing recent sexual encounters—and concluded that Kozinski was unlikely to ...

The Legal Implications Under Federal Law When States Enact Biology-Based Transgender Bathroom Laws For Students And Employees, Marka B. Fleming, Gwendolyn McFadden-Wade 2018 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

The Legal Implications Under Federal Law When States Enact Biology-Based Transgender Bathroom Laws For Students And Employees, Marka B. Fleming, Gwendolyn Mcfadden-Wade

Hastings Women’s Law Journal

Recently, numerous states have considered enacting transgender bathroom laws based on the individual’s biological sex. In some cases, when these biology-based laws have been enacted, the results have been lawsuits filed by students and employees claiming violations of Title IX and Title VII. Actually, the legal rights of transgender students and employees when using public restrooms or facilities has become a hot topic of debate in recent times. In addressing this hotly debated topic, this article focuses on the transgender bathroom issue at the state level and provides insight into the attempts by states to turn policy into law ...


Shackling Women During Labor: A Closer Look At The Inhume Practice Still Occurring In Our Prisons, Amanda Glenn 2018 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Shackling Women During Labor: A Closer Look At The Inhume Practice Still Occurring In Our Prisons, Amanda Glenn

Hastings Women’s Law Journal

Despite legislation and policy to prevent such things from happening, incarcerated pregnant women are still being shackled and restrained when they give birth in prison. Shackling women during childbirth creates risks for both mother and child, and is completely unnecessary to ensure the safety of prison or heath personnel. This note reviews the rules and policies in place on both the federal and state level and highlights several personal stories of women who have been restrained, even when rules prohibiting the use of shackles are on the books. This note also emphasizes the gaps in the law and suggests the ...


Romance Or Sexual Assault? Ambiguity Of Sexual Consent In The Media And How Yes Means Yes Legislation Can Help, Courtney Anne Groszhans 2018 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Romance Or Sexual Assault? Ambiguity Of Sexual Consent In The Media And How Yes Means Yes Legislation Can Help, Courtney Anne Groszhans

Hastings Women’s Law Journal

Before the reckoning of Me Too and the Time's Up Movement, legislation was being passed trying to prevent the numbers of sexual assault on college campuses with the Yes Means Yes legislation. Yes Means Yes Legislation often received the critique that people would have to sign a contract before engaging in sexual activity. However, upon reflection, a part of why Yes Means Yes sounds so severe is the American public is bombarded with an idea of romance in Hollywood movies that are arguably non-consensual and could be viewed as illegal depending on the targeted audience. Below these messages are ...


Intersectional Resistance: A Case Study On Crimmigration And Lessons For Organizing In The Trump Era, Robin Pomerenke 2018 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Intersectional Resistance: A Case Study On Crimmigration And Lessons For Organizing In The Trump Era, Robin Pomerenke

Hastings Women’s Law Journal

Increasingly, the federal government has sought to utilize local law enforcement’s proximity to and intimacy with local communities to detain and deport immigrants. The resultant growth of crimmigration—the simultaneous enforcement of immigration law and criminal law—has sparked a large-scale social movement in California over the last ten years. This movement has built connections and solidarities among actors across communities and issue areas, including the faith community, the legal community, [etc.]. Using the response to crimmigration as a case study, this Note examines the potentials for intersectional resistance. What role has an awareness of intersectionality played in the ...


Courts Rule Too Narrowly Regarding The Right To Wear Religious Clothing In Public, Kendyl L. Green 2018 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Courts Rule Too Narrowly Regarding The Right To Wear Religious Clothing In Public, Kendyl L. Green

Hastings Women’s Law Journal

For numerous years, state and institutional rules have barred individuals from wearing religious clothing. Specifically, this issue has arisen in the military, the workplace, police departments, prisons, and public schools. Wearing religious clothing, particularly head coverings, is a vital aspect of Judaism, Islam, and Sikhism. The United States Constitution upholds the right to religious liberty in the First and Fourteenth Amendments. Additionally, the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act of 1993 (RFRA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) statutes also protect religious freedom. Below, cases are examined that ...
