This book includes every Supreme Court case relevant to gender and sexual equality from the Court's beginnings to the end of the 2000/2001 term. It is a primary document reference book, organized topically in eight chapters: civic and social rights and duties; educational policies and instructions; employment and careers; sexual privacy and procreative rights; morality and sexual ethics; family; gender and sexual orientation; and other issues. Every case is included either as a full (edited) version of the majority or per curium opinion, extensive excerpts of the opinion, or a detailed description of the case. Using this single volume, a researcher can see how American legal history on the topic played out in its entirety. Back matter includes a Table of Cases and an extensive bibliography of books and legal periodicals.
