Prof. Barbara Stark’s ‘State Responsibility for Gender Stereotyping’ Published in The Journal of Gender, Race & Justice

Professor Barbara Stark’s article “State Responsibility for Gender Stereotyping” has been published in The Journal of Gender, Race & Justice, Vol. 17, 2014.

The article explains why anti-stereotyping is insufficient, what else is needed and why the Constitution cannot be relied upon to provide it.

It also explains why the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW or Women’s Convention) is far more promising.

The article concludes that CEDAW’s bar on stereotyping is not only better for women than the Constitution’s grant of equal protection, but better for men as well.
