Nine to Five provides a lively and accessible introduction to the laws and policies regulating sex, sexuality, and gender identity in the American workplace. Contemporary cases and events reveal the breadth and persistence of sexism and gender stereotyping. Through a series of essays organized around sex discrimination, sexual harassment, pregnancy discrimination, and pay equity, the book highlights legal rules and doctrines that privilege men over women and masculinity over femininity. In understanding the law - what it forbids, what it allows, and to what it turns a blind eye - we see why it is far too soon to declare the triumph of working women's equality. Despite significant gains for women, gender continues to define the work experience in both predictable and surprising ways. A witty and engaging guide to the legal terrain, Nine to Five also proposes solutions to the many obstacles that remain on the path to equality.

Gender and Law: Theory, Doctrine, Commentary, 7E 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 over 200 provocative “putting theory into practice” problems challenge students to think deeply about current gender law issues. Key Features of the new edition include: Materials surrounding LGBTQ issues have been significantly expanded to reflect statutory and judicial developments, including United States v. Windsor and Obergefell v. Hodges, legal developments concerning transgender individuals, and sexual orientation discrimination.In addition, the materials on sexual orientation discrimination have been woven throughout the book, rather than cabined in a separate section. Equal pay materials have been expanded and refocused to include cases on the “factor other than sex” defense and legislative efforts to strengthen protections against pay discrimination. Coverage of pregnancy and caregiver discrimination has been significantly expanded, and the Supreme Court’s opinion in Young v. United Parcel Service is included. Reproductive health materials have been revamped to reflect developments in the law concerning the Affordable Care Act and responses to legislative efforts to curtail women’s access to contraception and abortion. These materials included the addition of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby and Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstadt. International comparisons have been enlarged and updated. Updated profile of women in the legal system and the barriers to gender equity. Complete reworking and updating of materials on campus rape, including celebrated cases and reform strategies. Revised materials on domestic violence, prostitution, and pornography, including feminist debates over appropriate responses. Updated analysis of women, poverty, and income inequality. Increased attention to conflicts between gender and religion. Many additional Putting Theory Into Practice problems have been added, most of them reflecting contemporary disputes and conflicts. This brings the total number of problems to 200. Moreover, the teacher’s manual includes dozens of video clips that might be used in class at different points.

This comprehensive, mainstream text presents the basic theoretical, conceptual, and methodological tenets of sociology in a readable and personal manner. Its balanced presentation challenges students to pose their own questions about society and to think critically about the world in which they live. It presents the study of sociology as a means by which students can transcend personal and societal prejudices. This Seventh Edition continues its tradition of integrating innovative pedagogy directly into the book, such as: a built-in student study guide; lecture launching CNN video segments that link to text-specific topics; and continued use of the SQ3R (survey, question, read, recite and review) learning technique.

Dieser Band widmet sich dem nach wie vor hochaktuellen Querschnittsthema "Sex and Gender" mit dem Ziel, die diesbezuglichen theoretischen Stromungen, wissenschaftlichen Fragestellungen und empirischen Ergebnisse aus einer interdisziplinaren Perspektive zu bundeln. Das bereichsubergreifende Konstrukt Geschlecht wird hier insofern von anerkannten Kolleginnen und Kollegen ganz verschiedener Fachdisziplinen beleuchtet. Die behandelten Thematiken lassen sich hierbei drei grossen Teilbereichen zuordnen, wodurch auch die hohe Relevanz fur die verschiedenen Lebensphasen und gesellschaftlichen Kontexte evident wird: Entwicklung im Lebenslauf, Erziehung und Bildung, gesellschaftliche Strukturen und Integrationsprozesse."
