Grappling With Gender Equality, Jerry R. Parkinson Dec 1996

Grappling With Gender Equality, Jerry R. Parkinson

William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal

In this twenty-fifth anniversary year of the enactment of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the issue of gender equity in athletics is as divisive as ever. Lawsuits by female athletes and the demise of many men's teams have changed perceptions of Title IX in the 1990s and have provided an impetus for a thorough reexamination of the gender equity issue.

In this Article, Professor Parkinson begins with a brief overview of the regulatory framework governing Title IX's application to athletics. He then examines the legal standards by which the Department of Education's Office for ...


Strategic Sisterhood Or Sisters In Solidarity? Questions Of Communitarianism And Citizenship In Asia, Aihwa Ong Oct 1996

Strategic Sisterhood Or Sisters In Solidarity? Questions Of Communitarianism And Citizenship In Asia, Aihwa Ong

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

The Fourth World Conference on Women (Beijing 1995) has spawned a

Triumphant sense among Western/Northern feminists that they are forging a

strategic sisterhood with less privileged women in the South. Feminists from

metropolitan countries seek a new North-South alliance whereby they make

strategic interventions on behalf of third world women by putting pressure on

their governments. Professor Ong critiques strategic sisterhood on the

following grounds:

First, strategic sisterhood is based on individualistic notions of

transnational feminine citizenship, ignoring the historical and cultural

differences between women from the first and third worlds. In particular, the

concept ignores geopolitical inequalities whereby ...

Toward A Feminist Analytics Of The Global Economy, Saskia Sassen Oct 1996

Toward A Feminist Analytics Of The Global Economy, Saskia Sassen

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

Economic globalization has reconfigured fundamental properties of the

nation-state, notably territoriality and sovereignty. There is an incipient

unbundling of the exclusive territoriality we have lcing associated with the

nation-state. The most strategic instantiation of this unbundling is probably

the global city, which operates as a partly denationalized plaform for global

capital. Sovereignty is being unbundled by these economic and other noneconomic

practices and new legal regimes. At the limit this means that the

State is no longer the only site for sovereignty and the normativity that comes

with it, and further, that the State is no longer the exclusive subject ...

Stop Stomping On The Rest Of Us: Retrieving Publicness From The Privatization Of The Globe, Zillah Eisenstein Oct 1996

Stop Stomping On The Rest Of Us: Retrieving Publicness From The Privatization Of The Globe, Zillah Eisenstein

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

Professor Eisenstein's article discusses the effects of globalization on the

relationship between privatization and public responsibility and how this

dynamic impacts the future of women across the globe. She argues that the

global growth of privatization in the North and West has disseminated around

the world to the detriment of women. Privatization, she contends, has been

accepted as the agenda of politicians for the late twentieth century, and public

responsibility has been lost as a result.

According to Professor Eisenstein, globalization has been essentially an

economic process in which a global economy surfaces without differences or

borders. The global ...

Eastern Twists On Western Concepts: Equality Jurisprudence And Sexual Harassment In Japan, Leon Wolff Jul 1996

Eastern Twists On Western Concepts: Equality Jurisprudence And Sexual Harassment In Japan, Leon Wolff

Washington International Law Journal

A rich source of Japanese jurisprudence on sexual equality underlies Japan's emerging law against sexual harassment. With no law specifically outlawing sexual harassment, academics and the courts have invoked the principle of sexual equality to support their conclusion that Japanese law carries an implicit prohibition against acts of sexual harassment. In developing a legal case against sexual harassment, Japanese courts and academic commentators have introduced novel constructions of equality. The key innovations include relational equality, inherent equality and quantifiable equality. In presenting some of these Japanese contributions to equality jurisprudence, the hope is that feminist discourse on equality can ...

Drive-Through Deliveries: In Support Of Federal Legislation To Mandate Insurer Coverage Of Medically Sound Minimum Lengths Of Postpanum Stays For Mothers And Newborns, Freeman L. Farrow

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

President Clinton signed the Newborns' and Mothers' Health Protection Act of 1996 into law on September 26, 1996. The Act requires insurers that provide maternity benefits to cover medically sound minimum lengths of inpatient, postpartum stays according to the joint guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. This Note discusses the historical context in which the necessity for passage of protective legislation arose, the interplay between state and federal statutes that created the need for federal legislation to provide desired protections for postpartum patients and examines the provisions of the Act. This ...

Brief Of Intervenor, Women’S Legal Education And Action Fund (Leaf), Goertz V. Gordon, Laura Spitz

Faculty Scholarship

Historically, women have been almost exclusively responsible for the unpaid labour of child care with the assumption of primary child care responsibilities after separation. The courts must analyze each situation to determine whether a joint custody arrangement, in law, is in fact true equal parenting, in roles and responsibilities, or one more akin to sole custody when considering relocation restrictions.

Teacher Power In The Law School Classroom, Julie Macfarlane Apr 1996

Teacher Power In The Law School Classroom, Julie Macfarlane

Dalhousie Law Journal

Law teachers make choices over syllabus material, teaching methods and assessment formats, and thus inevitably exercise some control over what and how students learn. The actualpowerof each individual law professor will depend on the context of her particular classroom and her perceived credibility, generally defined by the university as the demonstration of a particular (rationalist) model of subject expertise. The intrinsic hierarchies and highly competitive culture of law school sustain this traditional model of knowledge along with its congruent image of the professor as autonomous, powerful and the focus of the classroom. Feminist law teachers and others who wish to ...

Neuf À Zero Ne Suffit Plus: Gould C. Yukon Order Of Pioneers Et La Perspective Feminine, Marie-France Major

Osgoode Hall Law Journal

Do women see the world in a way that is peculiar to them, that is, differently from the perceptions of men? In view of the decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in Gould v. Yukon Order of Pioneers, this question raises a highly pertinent issue. In Gould, where the subject of litigation was the interpretation of the human rights legislation of the Yukon, the Court was divided according to the gender of the judges. Only the female judges, in dissent, addressed the problem in terms of power, vulnerability, and equality, while the male judges adhered to a strict approach ...


The Proposed Model Surrogate Parenthood Act: A Legislative Response To The Challenges Of Reproductive Technology, Murray L. Manus Apr 1996

The Proposed Model Surrogate Parenthood Act: A Legislative Response To The Challenges Of Reproductive Technology, Murray L. Manus

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

In this Article, Manus proposes a Model Surrogate Parenthood Act. He examines the medical and scientific history of surrogacy and reviews the jurisprudence in the area, specifically the constitutional relationship between procreation rights and surrogacy. The author asserts that surrogate motherhood cannot be, and indeed, should not be, eradicated through legislation criminalizing it. The proposed Model Act, presented here in its entirety, attempts to reduce the problems inherent in the concept of surrogate parenthood by putting the process under strict court supervision and by zealously protecting the rights of the surrogate mother and the child to be conceived.
