In the book Supreme Court Decisions and Womenâ€™s Rights (2001), Clare Cushman writes,
Since its first ruling on the subject in 1986, the Supreme Court has struggled to define different categories of sexual harassment and to determine precisely under which circumstances to hold an employer liable for an employeeâ€™s sexual misconduct (p. 152).
In a short essay, discuss what Cushman means and how sexual harassment law was developed through U.S. Supreme Court decisions. Be sure to define what sexual harassment is in your answer. You should cite at least one U.S. Supreme Court case discussed in class and at least one of the assigned readings for this topic in your answer.
Your answers should be concise, coherent essays that advance an argument, not just simply listings of bullet points.
This paper should be 2 Â½ to 3 double-spaced pages, must be typed in legible (12 or 11 pt.) font, and have margins of one (1) inch.
Be sure to give references (including page numbers or dates of lectures) whenever quoting directly or using anotherâ€™s idea, argument, etc. MLA, APA and Chicago are all acceptable citation styles. As usual, grammar, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of writing will be considered when grading this paper.
