GENDER AND THE LAW
Do you think of women and law only when it comes to family law, reproductive rights, domestic violence and employment? Most folks always have thought that these are the only areas of law of particular interest to women. But Katherine Bartlett, professor of law at Duke, thinks otherwise.
She says that genderedness affects all areas of the law, and that the way it is structured legitimatizes inequality and oppression.
Bartlett teaches family law, employment discrimination law, gender and law, and contracts; and publishes widely in the fields of family law, gender theory, employment law, theories of social change, and legal education. She is coauthor of the leading casebook in the area of gender law.
Find out what she has to say about the law, where it’s been, where it is going, and what gender has to do with it all.
