            Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny

            Misogyny is a hot topic, yet it's often misunderstood. What is misogyny, exactly? Who deserves to be called a misogynist? How does misogyny contrast with sexism, and why is it prone to persist - or increase - even when sexist gender roles are waning? In Down Girl moral philosophe...r Kate Manne argues that misogyny should not be understood primarily in terms of the hatred or hostility some men feel toward all or most women. Rather, it is primarily about controlling, policing, punishing and exiling the bad women who challenge male dominance. And it is compatible with rewarding the good ones and singling out other women to serve as warnings to those who are out of order. A powerful, lucid analysis of the logic of misogyny from a remarkable feminist thinker, Down Girl is essential reading for the #MeToo era.

            <![CDATA[When it was published twenty-five years ago, Catharine MacKinnon?s pathbreaking work Sexual Harassment of Working Women had a major impact on the development of sexual harassment law. The U.S. Supreme Court accepted her theory of sexual harassment in 1986. Here MacKinnon... collaborates with eminent authorities to appraise what has been accomplished in the field and what still needs to be done.An introductory essay by Reva Siegel considers how sexual harassment came to be regulated as sex discrimination. Contributors discuss how law can best address sexual harassment; the importance and definition of consent and unwelcomeness; issues of same-sex harassment; questions of institutional responsibility for sexual harassment in both employment and education settings; considerations of freedom of speech; effects of sexual harassment doctrine on gender and racial justice; and transnational approaches to the problem. An afterword by MacKinnon assesses the changes wrought by sexual harassment law in the past quarter century. ]]>

            The African Union designated 2016 as the African Year of Human Rights with Particular Focus on the Rights of Women . Yet, we know little about the formidable African women who are transforming the face of regional and international justice. As we begin to understand the remarkabl...e trend of women rising to the top judicial positions in Africa, now, more than ever before, the time has come to interrogate more closely the ascent of African women as judges in international courts. What have been their pathways to international courts? What do they do once they get there? What lessons can be drawn from their presence, roles and contributions? Focusing on three permanent courts-the African Court on Human and People's Rights (AfCHPR), the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and sitting at the juncture of feminist institutional theory and postcolonial feminist theory, the contributors to this book demonstrates how institutional arrangements can help explain women's ascent to international courts. They posit that the presence of African women judges contributes to judicial diversity-nay a gendered and racial diversity which contributes to the legitimacy of international courts as arenas for equal opportunity and equal justice. The contributions of African women on international courts goes beyond mere diversity. In documenting the lives, achievements, contributions, challenges and successes of African women judges, this book is the go-to resource for understanding and evaluating the contributions of African women judges in international courts.
