Gender and Law: Theory, Doctrine, Commentary, Eighth Edition is organized around theoretical frameworks, showing different conceptualizations of equality and justice and their impact on concrete legal problems. The text provides complete, up-to-date coverage of conventional “women and the law” issues, including employment law and affirmative action, reproductive rights, LGBTQ issues, domestic violence, rape, pornography, international women’s rights, and global trafficking. Showing the complex ways in which gender permeates the law, the text also explores the gender aspects of subject matters less commonly associated with gender, such as property, ethics, contracts, sports, and civil procedure. Throughout, the materials allow an emphasis on alternative approaches and how these approaches make a difference. Excerpted legal cases, statutes, and law review articles form an ongoing dialogue within the book to stimulate thought and discussion and almost 250 provocative “putting theory into practice” problems challenge students to think deeply about current gender law issues. New to the Eighth Edition: The book now begins with an introductory chapter that previews the five major theoretical frameworks that shape the book: Formal Equality, Substantive Equality, Difference, Non-subordination, and Autonomy. It also introduces three critical perspectives that interrelate and enrich the study of gender—queer theory, intersectionality analysis, and masculinity theory. By introducing these critiques and adjacent theories from the outset, later chapters can integrate and build on these interrelations in specific areas of coverage. Putting Theory into Practice problems that pose cutting-edge, current issues are included throughout each chapter. Updated and more sustained attention to gender identity and non-binary identities throughout the book. Materials raising questions and critique about the intersection of race and gender are covered in greater depth. Materials and questions about masculinity as an aspect of gender are now integrated throughout the book instead of being covered discretely in a single chapter. Expanded coverage of the ERA and the renewed efforts to secure ratification. Materials on gender equity in the legal profession have been updated and new coverage has been added on women in leadership, including women in politics. The materials on public accommodations discrimination now include Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Comm’n as a principal case. An extensively revised and comprehensive teacher’s manual includes references to additional materials and updated suggestions of audio and video clips from films, documentaries, news programs, and television and radio series for the book’s main substantive topics.

Now there is a way to teach a comprehensive yet efficient course in employment law. By presenting a thematically and organizationally coherent view of employment law through the lens of private ordering, this refreshing new casebook avoids overwhelming students while enabling instructors to cover a wide range of content. The authors make their book accessible and teachable by: organizing the book around the theme of private ordering -- the rights and duties that flow between parties in an agreement -- and the laws that seek to balance contractual freedoms and market forces with countervailing social interests using this framework to comprehensively cover varied topics taught in the employment law survey course providing thorough thematic and doctrinal coverage of each area presenting cases that are rigorously edited for brevity but include detailed discussions of the facts using brief, accessible notes and questions to address the cases and stimulate critical thinking supplying problems and exercises that require students to apply the doctrine in a particular context and to think creatively about how to protect the interests of workers or their firms developing students' transactional lawyering skills -- such as planning, drafting, advising, and negotiating -- in the context of the employment relation The casebook is part of a complete teaching package that includes: a comprehensive Teacher's Manual that explains the selection of materials, discusses how the authors present the materials to their students, lists the questions they ask students, and provides answers and suggested comments for the problems and exercises in the book a helpful website -- updated monthly -- where professors and students will find newspaper and magazine stories, sample practitioner materials, new cases, updates, additional problems, PowerPoint slides, and employment law examinations
