Is There A 'Right' To Sport?, Danielle Ireland-Piper, Kim Weinert May 2015

Is There A 'Right' To Sport?, Danielle Ireland-Piper, Kim Weinert

Danielle Ireland-Piper

This article asks the question: ‘is there a ‘‘right’’ to sport?’ In so doing, the nature of a ‘right’ is defined and the ‘governing rules’ by which that right is to be understood are identified. In short, while a number of international instruments allude to the importance of sport and recreation, there is little evidence of an express right in Australia, or in other countries such as Canada, the United States, and South Africa. Nonetheless, it is arguable that implicit in the rights of disabled persons to enjoy the same access to sport and recreation as able-bodied persons is recognition ...


Hoop Dreams Deferred: The Wnba, The Nba, And The Long-Standing Gender Inequity At The Game’S Highest Level, N. Jeremy Duru Jan 2015

Hoop Dreams Deferred: The Wnba, The Nba, And The Long-Standing Gender Inequity At The Game’S Highest Level, N. Jeremy Duru

Utah Law Review

From the beginning, the WNBA—which was born of the NBA’s approval in the NBA’s cities with NBA teams’ colors and largely NBA-related names and which survived a challenge from the ABL by virtue of its NBA affiliation—has featured a more stringent age eligibility rule than the NBA. When taken together, the two rules create two different tracks—one for men and one for women—to be negotiated on route to a professional basketball career in the United States. This sort of dualtracking, in which one route presents advantages over the other, is unacceptable in a nation ...


A Bibliography Of Title Ix Of The Education Amendments Of 1972, Christine Iaconeta Dulac Jan 2013

A Bibliography Of Title Ix Of The Education Amendments Of 1972, Christine Iaconeta Dulac

Faculty Publications

It has been thirty-five years since the passage of Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972. Title IX provides that no person shall be excluded from participation in any educational program or activity that receives federal funding. This legislation is credited with bolstering the participation rates of girls and women in athletics. Although athletics are not explicitly addressed in the statutory language, Title IX requires schools to offer male and female students equal opportunities to play sports, to give male and female athletes their fair share of athletic scholarship money, and to treat male and female athletes equally in ...

Perceiving Subtle Sexism: Mapping The Social-Psychological Forces And Legal Narratives That Obscure Gender Bias, Deborah L. Brake Jan 2007

Perceiving Subtle Sexism: Mapping The Social-Psychological Forces And Legal Narratives That Obscure Gender Bias, Deborah L. Brake

Articles

This essay seeks to explain the Davis v. Monroe County Board of Education case as an interpretation of discrimination that notably and correctly focuses on how institutions cause sex-based harm, rather than on whether officials within chosen institutions act with a discriminatory intent. In the process, I discuss what appears to be the implicit theory of discrimination underlying the Davis decision: that schools cause the discrimination by exacerbating the harm that results from sexual harassment by students. I then explore the significance of the deliberate indifference requirement in this context, concluding that the standard, for all its flaws, is distinct ...

The Cruelest Of The Gender Police: Student-To-Student Sexual Harassment And Anti-Gay Peer Harassment Under Title Ix, Deborah L. Brake Jan 1999

The Cruelest Of The Gender Police: Student-To-Student Sexual Harassment And Anti-Gay Peer Harassment Under Title Ix, Deborah L. Brake

Articles

Title IX, like other sex discrimination laws, addresses discrimination that occurs because of an individual’s sex. Courts interpreting Title IX, like those interpreting Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, have struggled to demarcate a line separating discrimination because of sex from discrimination because of sexual orientation. This article constructs an argument for viewing anti-gay discrimination, and in particular anti-gay harassment between students, as a form of sex discrimination under Title IX. The article first explores why school inaction in the face of sexual harassment discriminates on the basis of sex. Although sex discrimination law generally has ...


Islam, Law And Custom: Redefining Muslim Women's Rights, Azizah Y. Al-Hibri Jan 1997

Islam, Law And Custom: Redefining Muslim Women's Rights, Azizah Y. Al-Hibri

Law Faculty Publications

In discussing personal status codes, the article focuses on three specific issues: the right of a woman to contract her own marriage, the duty of the wife to obey her husband, and the right of the wife to initiate divorce. There are several good reasons for focusing on these issues. Foremost among them is the fact that they have been and continue to be of great concern to Muslim women. Another reason is that despite their diverse subject matter, these three issues are based on the same jurisprudential foundation. Hence, our discussion and critical analysis of that foundation will have ...


When Ignorance Is Not Bliss: In Search Of Racial And Gender Equity In Intercollegiate Athletics, Rodney K. Smith Apr 1996

When Ignorance Is Not Bliss: In Search Of Racial And Gender Equity In Intercollegiate Athletics, Rodney K. Smith

Missouri Law Review

While racial and gender-based inequities regularly occur throughout our broader culture, this Article focuses on their presence in the context of athletics. Part II of this Article examines possible racial and gender implications associated with the common unwillingness, in the academic context, to take seriously the academic skills or values that may attend participation in athletics. Effective efforts to deal with racial and gender- based inequity in the operation of intercollegiate athletics will have to account for the presence of this broader academic ambivalence toward participation in athletics. Part III, in turn, deals with the existence of racial and gender ...

Title Ix Litigation In The 1990'S: The Courts Need A Game Plan, Christopher Raymond Jan 1995

Title Ix Litigation In The 1990'S: The Courts Need A Game Plan, Christopher Raymond

Seattle University Law Review

Part II of this Comment is a brief history of Title IX, from the enacting legislation through the 1980's. Part III summarizes recent decisions, identifying the issues courts are grappling with and what lines, if any, are being drawn. In Part IV, analyzes three issues which are repeatedly presented in recent cases. These issues are those upon which the courts have disagreed, or which pose potential problems in future litigation: 1) how should courts treat the tensions between the individual plaintiffs and the class-oriented goals of Title IX; 2) how much deference should school administrators be given when making ...
