Note 1: Please limit reference materials to course materials, including matters covered in our class sessions and in Chapters 1 – 3 of Milovanovic’s book, An Introduction to the Sociology of the Law. If you find relevance in the United States Constitution, or Feinman’s book Law 101, you are free but not required to also draw from these sources. Your analysis may but is not required to assume the form of an argument. That is, you may write an analysis with or without taking a position. Also, please avoid the first person “I” and include page cite references to course-book sources from which you draw.
Separately, if you assert either no gender pay gap exists and/or that the existence of any gender pay gap is entirely unrelated to ideas, concepts, themes, etc., contained in the commercial, explain why the advertisement’s ideological or thematic substance is irrelevant, and drawing from course materials develop one or more alternative bases to apply Marx’s, Weber’s and/or Durkheim’s works to the existence or non-existence of a gender pay gap.
