9780841914339: Women in American Law: The Struggle Towards Equality from the New Deal to the Present

In a lively, engaged style and from an informed feminist perspective, Judith Baer presents us with one of the most comprehensive and provocative up-to-date accounts on women's legal status in contemporary American society. This revised and expanded volume features new discussions on constitutional law (including the United States v. Virginia [VMI case]), sexual harassment (the Paula Jones case, same-sex harassment, employer responsibility, and harassment in schools), child custody (examines the shift toward presumption in favour of the primary caregiver and includes an updated treatment of the father's rights movement), advances in reproductive technology, the impact of ""new federalism"" in the Supreme Court (including the United States v. Morrison [VAWA Case]), and the effects of war and recession on women's status.
