PSCI3353 - Law and Gender

PSCI 3353 Law and Gender (3 semester credit hours) Examines how legal equality and gender discrimination have been defined, implemented and challenged in both international and U.S. law and policy. We will examine such topics as the development of international norms of women's rights, hurdles in implementing legal norms in the domestic context, and the factors that influence compliance. We will examine both case studies and empirical research, from a U.S. and a comparative perspective. (3-0) R
