New Law Review Article on Same Sex Education

Dawinder Sidhu, of the Discrimination and National Security Initiative at Stanford University, has published a new law review article, "Are Blue and Pink the New Brown? The Permissibility of Sex-Segregated Education as Affirmative Action".

Sidhu's essay notes that unlike race-based affirmative action, a topic which seems to incite a great deal of passion and divisiveness in academia and elsewhere, single-sex education and gender-based affirmative action do not encounter as much skepticism from the general population or in legal opinions. Sidhu's essay explores whether and to what extent the affirmative action provision Title IX Educational Amendments permits institutions to offer sex-segregated education.
