POL 333 Gender, Law and Policy

3 Credit(s) W-II
This course explores how gender shapes American law and policy.  Through the review of court decisions, laws, and legislation on issues such as employment discrimination, same sex marriage, welfare, and access to birth control and abortion, the course examines the ways in which perceptions of gender influence the formulation, adoption, and implementation of public policy.  This writing intensive course also looks at the interests and organizations involved in these policy contests and legal disputes.  Three lecture hours per week. Prerequisite: Completion of W-I course.
