Deborah Brake Presents Her Work at the Indiana Journal of Law & Social Equality Symposium

 

On Friday, April 5, 2013, Professor Deborah Brake presented her paper, "Discrimination Inward and Upward: The Troubling Case of Women Coaches," at the Second Annual Indiana Journal of Law & Social Equality Symposium in Bloomington, Indiana.  The paper examines within-group, upstream bias by female athletes toward women coaches as a counter-paradigm in discrimination law.  Moving this counter-paradigm from the margin to the center reveals under-examined tensions in discrimination law relating to major themes of animus, essentialism, intersectionality, and agency, which must be resolved for discrimination law to move forward in social equality projects.
