WGSS 32.03 The Constitutional Rights of Women

This course combines the study of U.S. Supreme Court cases that directly affected (and continue to affect) women’s rights with the examination of women’s narratives about their experiences in society before, during and after those landmark decisions. We will weave the stories of women of various races, religions, sexual identities and employment histories, many of whom were unwitting or unexpected plaintiffs in landmark Supreme Court cases, with the Court’s reasoning and intentions in those opinions. We will also examine the evolution and contributions of the female justices of the U.S. Supreme Court and observe how their experiential rhetoric informs the Court’s opinions.
