McGinley, Ann C. and Nicole Buonocore Porter, eds. Feminist Judgments Rewritten Employment Discrimination Opinions. Cambridge University Press, 2020.

How would feminist perspectives and analytical methods change the interpretation of employment discrimination law? Would the conscious use of feminist perspectives make a difference? This volume shows the difference feminist analysis can make to the interpretation of employment discrimination statutes. This book brings together a group of scholars and lawyers to rewrite fifteen employment discrimination decisions in which a feminist analysis would have changed the outcome or the courts' reasoning. It demonstrates that use of feminist perspectives and methodologies, if adopted by the courts, would have made a significant difference in employment discrimination law, leading to a fairer and more egalitarian workplace, and a more prosperous society.

  • Uses feminist theories and an intersectional approach to rewrite important cases in employment discrimination law, examining not only sex and gender but also race and religion
  • Employs commentaries before each rewritten case that explain how the rewritten cases differ from the original and how the rewritten case would have changed the law
  • Examines stereotypes, masculinities theory, and the role of implicit bias in discrimination
