Gender and the Law of the Sea: Book Launch and Panel Discussion

Tuesday, June 4, 2019
Columbia Law School | Jerome Greene Hall | Room 105
4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Event Link

In "Gender and the Law of the Sea," a distinguished group of law of the sea and feminist scholars critically engage with one of the oldest fields of international law. While the law of the sea has been traditionally portrayed as a technical, gender-neutral set of rules of concern to States rather than humans, the authors in this volume persuasively argue that critical feminist perspectives are needed to question the underlying assumptions of ostensibly gender-neutral norms. Coming at a time when the presence of women at sea is increasing, the volume forcefully and successfully argues that legal rules are relevant to ensure gender equality and the empowerment of women and gender minorities at sea, in an effort to render law for the oceans more inclusive.

On September 6th, 2018 in a landmark judgment for the LGBTQ community in India, the Supreme Court abolished Section 377, a colonial-era sodomy law that was used to criminalize homosexuality.

Columbia Law School's Menaka Guruswamy and Arundhati Katju represented the lead petitioners in the case, seeking to overturn Section 377 on the basis that it was unconstitutional, as it enabled discrimination and stigmatization of individuals on the basis of their sexual orientation and expression. Leading up to the hearing, they were the prime architects of a creative, multi-year litigation strategy to rid India of Section 377, which Guruswamy called “a colonial stain on [India's] collective national conscience”—an archaic law that sowed debilitating fear and stigma among sexual minorities.

This program featured a panel discussion moderated by Professor Katherine Franke, with panelists Menaka Guruswamy, Arundhati Katju, and Suzanne Goldberg.

“Move Aside and Cover Yourself”: Between Gender Equality and Religious Accommodation in Today’s Israel

Wednesday, October 3, 2018
Columbia Law School
Jerome Greene Hall | Room 646

Event link: “Move Aside and Cover Yourself”: Between Gender Equality and Religious Accommodation in Today’s Israel

Dr. Yofi Tirosh is a Tel Aviv University legal scholar, public intellectual, and activist. In this presentation, moderated by Professor Suzanne Goldberg, Dr. Tirosh examined current cultural dilemmas regarding the public ethos of gender equality and the accommodation of religious sensibilities of Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox Jewish and conservative Muslim communities in Israel.

On one side of this clash are secular and non-Orthodox women who have grown up expecting full access to education, opportunities, representation in the cultural sphere, and equal protection under the law. On the other side are communities who practice strict modesty and sex-segregation from an early age through adulthood. The omnipresence of women in Israeli public life is problematic for ultra-Orthodox men who are forbidden to look at or hear the voices of women who are not members of their immediate family. Their plea for an accommodation of their religious beliefs inherently entails the exclusion of all women, Orthodox and not, from public life.
