Sex, Gender, Religious Freedom: The Constitution and Federal Statutes

 
Date:
Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019
 
Time:
7:00 p.m.
 
Description:
When Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Law was debated it included race as a protected class for employment. A southern legislator proposed that "sex" be inserted into the law, saying that this addition would surely cause the civil rights law to fail. To his surprise, it passed. And today Supreme Court justices have to decide whether the addition of "sex" decades ago should cover gender identity claims today. We'll talk about cases before the Court and also discuss the impact of First Amendment religious freedom claims. Gender, sex, religious freedom--which should "Trump?"
