WGST-251-01 Women and the Law
Spring for 2014-2015
Collina, Sara
This course examines the treatment of women in U.S. law and its implications for public policy. Gender will be the primary category of analysis, but discussions will reflect the many factors that influence the ways in which individuals view and
encounter the law (socio-economic status, race, religion, political outlook, sexual orientation, etc.). Topics include workplace discrimination, single-sex education, domestic violence, same-sex marriage, and reproductive rights. Note: I am committed to
meeting the educational needs of the students enrolled in the course. Toward that end, I may
change some content and requirements during the semester.
PREREQUISITES
None. The course does not assume prior knowledge of the law.
