Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s last book is a curation of her own legacy, tracing the long history of her work for gender equality and a more perfect Union. In the fall of 2019, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg visited the University of California, Berkeley School of Law to deliver the first annual Herma Hill Kay Memorial Lecture in honor of her friend, the late Herma Hill Kay, with whom Ginsburg had coauthored the very first casebook on sex-based discrimination in 1974.

In this collection, the two bring together that conversation and other materialsmany previously unpublishedthat share details from Justice Ginsburg’s family life and long career.

3. Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny

Author: by Kate Manne

Misogyny is a hot topic, yet it’s often misunderstood. What is misogyny, exactly? Who deserves to be called a misogynist? How does misogyny contrast with sexism, and why is it prone to persist – or increase – even when sexist gender roles are waning?

This book is an exploration of misogyny in public life and politics by the moral philosopher and writer Kate Manne. It argues that misogyny should not be understood primarily in terms of the hatred or hostility some men feel toward all or most women.

Rather, it’s primarily about controlling, policing, punishing, and exiling the “bad” women who challenge male dominance. And it’s compatible with rewarding “the good ones,” and singling out other women to serve as warnings to those who are out of order.

It’s also common for women to serve as scapegoats, be burned as witches, and treated as pariahs. Manne examines recent and current events such as the Isla Vista killings by Elliot Rodger, the case of the convicted serial rapist Daniel Holtzclaw, who preyed on African-American women as a police officer in Oklahoma City, Rush Limbaugh’s diatribe against Sandra Fluke, and the “misogyny speech” of Julia Gillard, then Prime Minister of Australia, which went viral on YouTube.

United States Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has spent a lifetime defying notions about the way women are and, in the process, has become a cultural icon as well as a profoundly influential jurist.

Included are Justice Ginsburg’s majority opinions in United States v. Virginia (1996), and Sessions v. Morales-Santana (2017); her concurrence in Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt (2016); a selection from the Court’s 20182019 term; and some of the justice’s most famous dissents, such as those in Ledbetter v.

Goodyear Tire (2007), Gonzales v. Carhart (2007), and Burwell v.Hobby Lobby (2014). Also included are an introduction and explanatory notes that help make these writings accessible to a nonlegal audience.

A Wall Street Journal Besteller! Alan Dershowitz, one of America’s most respected legal scholars and a New York Times bestselling author proveswith incontrovertible evidencethat he is entirely innocent of the sexual misconduct accusations against him, while suggesting a roadmap for how such allegations should be handled in a just society.

Maybe the question isn’t what happened to Alan Dershowitz. Maybe it’s what happened to everyone else. Politico Alan Dershowitz has been called one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America by Politico and the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights by Newsweek.

Yet he has come under intense criticism for applying those same principles, and his famed shoeontheotherfoot test, to those accused of sexual misconduct. In Guilt by Accusation, Dershowitz provides an indepth analysis of the false accusations against him, alongside a full presentation of the exculpatory evidence that proves his account, including emails from his accuser and an admission of his innocence from her lawyer, David Boies.

7. Queer (In)Justice: The Criminalization of LGBT People in the United States (Queer Ideas/Queer Action)

Author: by Joey L. Mogul
240 pages

View on Amazon

A groundbreaking work that turns a queer eye on the criminal legal system Drawing on years of research, activism, and legal advocacy, Queer (In)Justice is a searing examination of queer experiences as “suspects,” defendants, prisoners, and survivors of crime.

The authors unpack queer criminal archetypesfrom “gleeful gay killers and “lethal lesbians” to “disease spreaders” and “deceptive gender benders”to illustrate the punishment of queer expression, regardless of whether a crime was ever committed. Tracing stories from the streets to the bench to behind prison bars, the authors prove that the policing of sex and gender both bolsters and reinforces racial and gender inequalities.

An eye-opening study of LGBTQ rights and equality, Queer (In)Justice illuminates and challenges the many ways in which queer lives are criminalized, policed, and punished.

Gerry Crane had hit his stride. A talented high school music teacher, he was loved by students and parentslauded as one of the best teachers at his school. Gerry had reconciled his conservative religious upbringing with his identity as a gay man, finding an affirming spiritual home in a local church.

He enjoyed a close circle of loving friends and had found the love of his life. In October 1995, Gerry and his partner exchanged vows in a private commitment ceremony. By the time Gerry returned to work the following week, word had spread that he had married a man.

The once loved teacher was vilified. Parents removed their children from his classes. Most of his colleagues ostracized him. The school board publicly declared that individuals who espouse homosexuality do not constitute proper role models as teachers and pledged to investigate and monitor Gerry.

Ministers and churches joined the fray, proclaiming contrasting views about Christianity and homosexuality. As these events unfolded under the glare of the local and national media, Gerry’s life became agonizing. Disturbing and deeply moving, Private Love, Public School recounts the true story of what happened when members of a midwestern community demanded that their religious beliefs be imposed on a public schooland the school followed suit.

10. Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics, and the Limits of Law

Author: by Dean Spade
240 pages

View on Amazon

Revised and Expanded EditionWaitwhat’s wrong with rights? It is usually assumed that trans and gender nonconforming people should follow the civil rights and “equality” strategies of lesbian and gay rights organizations by agitating for legal reforms that would ostensibly guarantee nondiscrimination and equal protection under the law.

This approach assumes that the best way to address the poverty and criminalization that plague trans populations is to gain legal recognition and inclusion in the state’s institutions. But is this strategy effective? In Normal Life Dean Spade presents revelatory critiques of the legal equality framework for social change, and points to examples of transformative grassroots trans activism that is raising demands that go beyond traditional civil rights reforms.

Spade explodes assumptions about what legal rights can do for marginalized populations, and describes transformative resistance processes and formations that address the root causes of harm and violence. In the new afterword to this revised and expanded edition, Spade notes the rapid mainstreaming of trans politics and finds that his predictions that gaining legal recognition will fail to benefit trans populations are coming to fruition.

Through personal narratives and qualitative empirical studies, more than 40 authors expose the daunting challenges faced by academic women of color as they navigate the often hostile terrain of higher education, including hiring, promotion, tenure, and relations with students, colleagues, and administrators.

View on Amazon

Gender and Law: Theory, Doctrine, Commentary, Eighth 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. New to the Eighth Edition: The book now begins with an introductory chapter that previews the five major theoretical frameworks that shape the book: Formal Equality, Substantive Equality, Difference, Non-subordination, and Autonomy.
