The University of Toledo Law Review presents


Gender Equality: Progress & Possibilities


Discussions of gender in American society have been ongoing since the suffrage movement began in the 19th Century. Today, “feminism” is a controversial term. Intersectional critiques of the historic whiteness and privilege of the feminist movement have likewise challenged feminism’s relevance. The recent divisive political climate has further catalyzed dialogue about this topic, suggesting a retrenchment of traditional perspectives on gender and highlighting serious patterns of ongoing discrimination that may increasingly render feminism relevant.


The University of Toledo Law Review’s 2017 Symposium will explore the ways in which gender equality has been achieved or remains aspirational in nature. Four panels of experts will discuss gender as applied to various areas of life and law. Panels will include: 1) Sex Inequality in the Workplace; 2) Gender Equality in Education; 3) Gendered Violence; and 4) Reimagining Family Law.


Martin Luther King, Jr. Professor of Law Lisa Pruitt from the University of California, Davis, will present the keynote address titled “The Women Feminism Forgot: Rural and Working-Class White Women in the Age of Trump.”
