Denver University Law Review Annual Symposium

On January 31 and February 1, 2014, the Denver University Law Review will host its annual symposium titled “Revisiting Sex: Gender & Sex Discrimination Fifty Years After the Civil Rights Act.”

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 represents one of the most significant milestones of the twentieth century. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protects individuals against employment discrimination on the bases of race, color, national origin, sex, and religion.

The Denver University Law Review’s 2014 Symposium, “Revisiting Sex: Gender and Sex Discrimination Fifty Years after the Civil Rights Act,” will explore the meaning of “sex” under Title VII, present the role gender plays in the workplace, and review the shortcomings of the fifty-year-old Title VII framework. Panel topics include Caregiving in 2014; Intersectionalities; Access to Work, Pay Inequality, and Discrimination; Sexuality and Gender Issues; and Biases in Litigation and Amongst the Judiciary.

By examining the shortcomings of the Title VII framework, the Symposium will highlight how an anachronistic legal framework is often inadequate to address contemporary gender discrimination.

All are welcome, and CLE credit will be available. For more information about the Symposium, please visit our Revisiting Sex page. The final agenda for the Symposium is available for download here. For any other questions, please contact LaLonnie Villa-Martinez.
