Gender and Law: Theory, Doctrine, Commentary, Ninth 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.

Highlights of the 9th Edition:

This edition is both faithful to its original design--teaching through theoretical frameworks rather than by subject area--and cutting edge. The authors have spared no detail in covering the latest developments in this fast-changing field of study while tying them together into a cohesive whole.

  • Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, a restructuring of the materials on reproductive rights, and greater attention to the reproductive justice movement and the intersectional issues raised by every issue involving reproductive health.
  • Updated and more sustained attention to gender identity and nonbinary identities, including Bostock v. Clayton County, new material on transgender athlete bans, and a new section on sex-segregation and sex-differentiation within coed spaces (including Peltier v. Charter Day School, Inc. on sex-specific dress codes).
  • Materials raising questions and critique about the intersection of race and gender, including historical materials that highlight the relationship between women's suffrage advocates and abolitionists and excerpts from newer scholars.
  • Coverage of the impact of the Covid-19 crisis and its exacerbation of gender issues at work and in the home.
  • Updated equal pay materials, revised to highlight new developments in Equal Pay Act litigation, including Rizo v. Yovino on the use of prior salary as a "factor other than sex."
  • Revised materials on the criminal law of rape that include material from the proposed amendment to the Model Penal Code as well as coverage of the racial stereotypes sometimes reflected in the wrongful accusation and conviction of Black men.
