April 3: Feminist Legal Theory PART 5: FEMINIST LEGAL THEORY Feminist Legal Theory: Here we will discuss the grand theme of women as property. This section will specifically look at music that either exemplifies the struggle that women endure in society or the more misogynistic lyrics that define women as objects. Once the property discussion is addressed, the music will be seen as rallying cries, just as “We Shall Overcome” was introduced. The continued demarginalization of women throughout society is often professed or addressed in music and we will analyze that. Nadine Taub and Elizabeth M. Schneider: 3-21 “You Remind Me of Something” – R. Kelly It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World” – James Brown April 5: Feminist Legal Theory Catharine A. MacKinnon: 276-287 Janet Rifkin: 412-418 “Pussy Ain’t Shit” – Funkdoobiest “Natural Woman” – Aretha Franklin “Guys Do It All the Time” – Mindy McCready April 10: Feminist Legal Theory Kimberle Williams Crenshaw: 383-398 Patricia J. Williams: 594-602 “Black Boys on Mopeds” – Sinead O’Connor “97’ Bonnie and Clyde” – Eminem “Silent All These Years” – Tori Amos April 12: Class PART 6: CLASS Class: In terms of both fluidity and benefit, class follows race and gender. This is an extremely large concept and can oftentimes overshadow race and gender. So, we will focus on one aspect of class: education. Education: Here, education, is not solely about the connection between affirmative action and class. Instead, this section uses scholarship that discusses those that have “self-educated” themselves. The uniqueness of this section is that many of the “self-educated” persons are either the musical artists themselves or the subjects of many of these songs. It is the goal in this section to ask whether the law needs to be involved in addressing the class struggle. Can the law be involved? Do the courts play a role? Can they be taken out of the equation? George Jackson: 1-197 “Ghetto is a College” – The Meditations “Uncle George” – Steel Pulse April 17: No class Monday class schedule followed April 19: Class - ASSIGNMENT #2 DUE AT BEGINNING OF CLASS Thaddeus J.
