Course Description

Constitutions around the world guarantee sex equality, or gender justice, in a variety of ways: through general equality clauses, gender-specific non-discriminating guarantees, political and other quotas, reproductive and social rights, and a broader range of international human rights guarantees. This course will explore these provisions, and their interpretation via courts around the world, with a view to addressing three broad questions: What are the consequences of these different provisions for the achievement of gender justice? What do they tell us about US constitutional models and practices regarding sex equality? And what theories of gender justice or sex equality do they reflect or advance?
