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 ...


Sexual Privacy, Danielle Keats Citron 2018 University of Maryland School of Law

Sexual Privacy, Danielle Keats Citron

Faculty Scholarship

Those who wish to expose, control, and distort the identities of women, minorities, and minors routinely do so by invading their privacy. People are secretly recorded in bedrooms and public bathrooms, and “up their skirts.” Victims are coerced into sharing nude photographs and filming sex acts under the threat of public disclosure. People’s nude images are posted online without permission. Machine-learning technology is used to create digitally manipulated “deep sex fake” videos that swap people’s faces into pornography.

At the heart of these abuses is an invasion of sexual privacy—the specific set of identity-enabling and equality-protecting rules ...


A Pathway To Safety: Legal Protection For Immigrant Victims Of Domestic Violence, Joni Pobedinsky 2018 Daemen College

A Pathway To Safety: Legal Protection For Immigrant Victims Of Domestic Violence, Joni Pobedinsky

Academic Festival Posters

In the United States, some immigrant women, especially those who are unauthorized, suffer abuse and exploitation. These women often depend on a U.S. citizen or “Lawful Permanent Resident” spouse (LPR) to petition on their behalf, or their legal status may be tied to their spouse’s employment. Dependence on an abusive spouse for legal status creates a system where immigrant victims fear deportation if they report the abuse and exploitation they suffer. In these cases, the precarious legal status of immigrant women is used by a spouse as a tool of control, often silencing the victims through threats of ...

The Way Pavers: Eleven Supreme Court-Worthy Women, Meg Penrose 2018 Texas A&M University School of Law

The Way Pavers: Eleven Supreme Court-Worthy Women, Meg Penrose

Faculty Scholarship

Four women have served as Associate Justices on the United States Supreme Court. Since the Court’s inception in 1789, 162 individuals have been nominated to serve as Supreme Court Justices. Five nominees, or roughly 3 percent, have been women. To help put this gender dearth in perspective, more men named “Samuel” have served as Supreme Court Justices than women. Thirteen U.S. Presidents have nominated more people to the Supreme Court than the total number of women that have served on the Court. Finally, there are currently more Catholics serving on the Supreme Court than the number of women ...


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 ...


Asilo Para Las Mujeres: The Hesitation To Recognize Women As A Particular Social Group Under U.S. Asylum Legislation And Its Effects On The Central American Migrant Crisis Of Women, Yamilet Eliezet Cortes Gil 2018 Bard College

Asilo Para Las Mujeres: The Hesitation To Recognize Women As A Particular Social Group Under U.S. Asylum Legislation And Its Effects On The Central American Migrant Crisis Of Women, Yamilet Eliezet Cortes Gil

Senior Projects Spring 2018

Under U.S. Asylum Law a person can seek protection by proving that they have been subject to persecution on account of their : 1) political opinion 2) race 3) religion 4) nationality 5) membership in a particular social group (Nexus)[1]. The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), Federal Circuit Courts, and the Supreme Court continue to hesitate to establish “women” as a particular social group that faces persecution. The current Central American migrant crisis of women is the first challenge of this magnitude to U.S. asylum law rethinking its stance on qualifying women as a particular social group. I ...


Women’S Human Rights And Migration: Sex-Selective Abortion Laws In The United States And India, Rangita de Silva de Alwis 2018 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Women’S Human Rights And Migration: Sex-Selective Abortion Laws In The United States And India, Rangita De Silva De Alwis

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

Sital Kalantry’s Women’s Human Rights and Migration: Sex Selective Abortion Laws in the United States and India addresses a long-existing gap in feminist theory at the intersection of a migrant woman’s experience and culturally motivated reproductive decisions. By recognising the possibility that ‘practices that are oppressive to women in one country context may not have a negative impact on women in another country context’ Kalantry takes an important step in creating a framework for evaluating competing human rights interests within the complex cultural contexts that arise in migrant-receiving countries. Her proposed framework rejects the decontextualisation and politicisation ...


“Long Past Time”: Cedaw Ratification In The United States, Rangita de Silva de Alwis, Amanda M. Martin 2018 University of Pennsylvania Law School

“Long Past Time”: Cedaw Ratification In The United States, Rangita De Silva De Alwis, Amanda M. Martin

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

More than 70 years after Eleanor Roosevelt pioneered the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the US has not ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW or what is known as the global Bill of Rights for Women). The Trump administration is planning measures such as paid parental leave and child care legislation which are supported by the CEDAW. Despite the Trump administration's caution about human rights treaties, we argue that an enlightened self-interest on the part of the administration will draw it towards the CEDAW ratification despite the ratification ...


Baby M Turns 30: The Law And Policy Of Surrogate Motherhood, Eric A. Feldman 2018 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Baby M Turns 30: The Law And Policy Of Surrogate Motherhood, Eric A. Feldman

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

This article marks the 30th anniversary of the Supreme Court of New Jersey’s Baby M decision by offering a critical analysis of surrogacy policy in the United States. Despite fundamental changes in both science and society since the case was decided, state courts and legislatures remain bitterly divided on the legality of surrogacy. In arguing for a more uniform, permissive legal posture toward surrogacy, the article addresses five central debates in the surrogacy literature.

First, should the legal system accommodate those seeking conception through surrogacy, or should it prohibit such arrangements? Second, if surrogacy is permitted, what steps can ...
