Sex Equality [PDF]

by Catharine A. MacKinnon
Sex Equality is a legal casebook that breaks the mold and defines the field.Theoretical and practical, scholarly and engaged, domestic and transnational, this volume combines a thorough canvas of the law of the status of the sexes with an insightful authoritative treatise and creative litigation manual. The first half of the book, Foundations, interrogates the mainstream legal equality paradigm through materials drawn from theory, social science, history, and comparative law.Cases on racism, work, education, athletics, and pregnancy are examined in detail, accessibly presenting the statutory and constitutional materials of sex discrimination law in a fresh light.A chapter on Sex, Race and Nation expands on the connections between racism and sexism raised throughout.Burdens of Proof equips the litigator with basic technical skills while examining the political and theoretical issues on procedural terrain.

Applications, the second half of the book, explores issues that have received less legal equality attention, including the law of the family, rape, abortion, prostitution, and pornography.The argument that gay and lesbian rights are sex equality rights is advanced.Sexual harassment in employment and education are discussed in depth.In this volume, legal doctrine and social theory are analyzed together with international and comparative perspectives supplied throughout.Sex Equality provides an exciting interdisciplinary, global, practical state-of-the-art inquiry into the past, present and possible law of relations between the sexes.
