IS P.M.S. A TOOL FOR PERPETUATING MALE SUPERIORITY? The article, by my colleague Becky Jacobs, looks the use of PMS as a defense by female defendants, and in employment-discrimination and disability claims, and suggests that this tends to reinforce stereotypes, and is harmful to women even if it benefits individual defendants or complainants. Plus, a citation to Ann Althouse!
The citation is to an article I wrote called “The Lying Woman, The Devious Prostitute, and Other Stories from the Evidence Casebook” (88 Northwestern Law Review 914 (1994)). Of course, I list all my articles on my vita, so the word "prostitute" is there. So is "harlots." (From "Beyond King Solomon’s Harlots: Women in Evidence," 65 Southern California Law Review 1265 (1992).)
