Sex Equality

Sex Equality, third edition, comprehensively updates and analyzes the legal doctrine and social concept of sex equality in theoretical, comparative, international, historical, and social scientific context. Together with the relative situation of women and men, detailed attention is given throughout to racism, the treatment of Native peoples, economic class, sexual orientation, and transgender status. Centered on U.S. legal cases, the book maps and interrogates the traditional approach to sex discrimination based on sameness and difference and develops a theory of substantive equality based on hierarchy as well. Materials on race, work, education, athletics, and pregnancy are included. An updated chapter on burdens of proof equips the litigator with basic technical tools in critical perspective. Expanding sex equality concepts, including arguments gaining increasing recognition, the law of the family, rape, sexual harassment in work and education, gay and lesbian rights, reproductive issues including abortion and surrogacy, prostitution, and pornography are thoroughly explored in light of contemporary cultural, legal, and transnational developments and controversies. This volume provides detailed information on inequality between the sexes, an expert grasp of the legal and conceptual tools of sex equality in its manifold dimensions, and visions of future possibilities. This stimulating, flexible, up-to-the-minute treatment of a rapidly expanding and changing area--one of the most frequently litigated--provides an accessible basis for courses in law schools and undergraduate colleges by a widely recognized leading expert in the field.

Die Schande von Missoula

Vergewaltigung im Land der Freiheit

Author: Jon Krakauer

Publisher: Piper ebooks

Die meisten Vergewaltiger kannten ihre Opfer vorher, wodurch die Strafverfolgung und die gerichtliche Suche nach der Wahrheit oft komplex und undurchsichtig ist und die vergewaltigten Frauen ein zweites Mal traumatisiert werden. In seinem neuen Buch beschäftigt sich Jon Krakauer mit Vergewaltigungsfällen in der amerikanischen Universitätsstadt Missoula. Minutiös und doch einfühlsam skizziert er die Ereignisse, die eine ganze Gesellschaft an der Frage nach Recht und Unrecht, Wahrheit und Lüge verzweifeln lassen, er spricht mit den Beschuldigten und den Opfern und schildert packend, wie schmerzhaft die Suche nach Gerechtigkeit und Sühne bei Gericht sein kann.

Das Ende der Männer

und der Aufstieg der Frauen

Author: Hanna Rosin

Publisher: ebook Berlin Verlag

ISBN: 3827076307

Category: Social Science

Ist die jahrtausendealte Herrschaft des Patriarchats am Ende? Noch nicht, sagt Hanna Rosin, doch die massiven Veränderungen der Berufswelt und des Bildungssystems haben eine Dynamik in Gang gesetzt, die das Verhältnis zwischen den Geschlechtern nachhaltig verändert. So scheinen viele Anforderungen der modernen Dienstleistungsgesellschaft – Flexibilität, soziale Intelligenz, Kommunikationsfähigkeit – eindeutig Frauen in die Hände zu spielen, während Männer oft von den Umwälzungen überfordert sind. Hanna Rosin zeigt – frei von ideologischen Prämissen –, wie sich heute das Leben von Männern und Frauen unterscheidet, wie sehr sich die Art und Weise geändert hat, wie heute gearbeitet, gelernt, zusammengelebt wird. Differenziert und mit vielen konkreten Beispielen gelingt es Rosin, die Chancen und Schattenseiten des »weiblichen Jahrhunderts« in den Blick zu nehmen. "Das Ende der Männer" ist keine feministische Streitschrift, keine Prophezeiung, sondern eine messerscharfe, weitsichtige Diagnose.

The third edition of the highly regarded Gender and Law: Theory, Doctrine, Commentary continues to offer an approach to the field that reinforces the alternative theoretical frameworks for considering the important legal issues of our time relating to gender. It reaches well beyond the traditional topics of employment, family, and the U.S. Constitution to show how subject matters as diverse as ethics, civil procedure, property law, immigration law and other areas of the law can have a significant gender dimension. The authors make the subject meaningful and memorable through: a balanced approach that emphasizes alternative, often competing, perspectives a statutory appendix for more detail on commonly cited laws effective use of introductory text, cases, cutting-edge feminist scholarship, and notes problems that give students experience in applying theory to real-life situations the integration of material on race, class, gender, and sexual orientation Look for these important changes in the Third Edition of this fully revised casebook: more international material, including human rights issues new co-author Deborah L. Rhode joins an outstanding author team greater emphasis on practical applications of theoretical material increased coverage of marriage and motherhood greater attention to women and poverty new cases on First Amendment right of expression (Boy Scouts of America v. Dale), peer sexual harassment in public schools (Davis v. Monroe County), Violence Against Women Act (US v. Morrison), partial-birth abortion, and reproductive technology For excellent coverage, and for a balanced, comprehensive layout of the field of Gender and Law that develops multiple approaches and perspectives, ranging from traditional formal equality analysis to more radical feminist critiques, you will want to consider Gender and Law: Theory, Doctrine, Commentary, Third Edition, by Bartlett, Harris, and Rhode.

Meine geliebte Welt

Aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Puertoricanerin, die Kindheit prekär, der Vater Alkoholiker, die Mutter überfordert – Sonia Sotomayor war es nicht gerade in die Wiege gelegt, eines Tages Richterin am höchsten Gericht der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika zu werden. Mit einem großen Herzen und viel Humor erzählt diese Ausnahmefrau von ihrem Weg, aber nicht um sich dabei auf die Schulter zu klopfen, sondern um anderen Menschen mit ihrer eigenen Geschichte Mut zu machen. Ein hinreißendes, ansteckendes Buch über das Trotzdem und über die – wirklich wichtigen – Dinge des Lebens. „’Nach der Lektüre werden mich die Leser nach menschlichen Kriterien beurteilen’, schreibt Sonia Sotomayor. Wir, die wir in diesem Fall die Jury sind, finden sie einfach unwiderstehlich.“ Washingtonian „Überwältigende und stark geschriebene Memoiren zum Thema Identität und Persönlichkeitsfindung ... Offenherzig, scharf beobachtet und vor allem tief empfunden.“ The New York Times „Eine Frau, die weiß, wo sie herkommt und die die Kraft hat, uns dorthin mitzunehmen.“ The New York Times Book Review
