Are Women a Suspect Class
The Supreme Court applies three standards of scrutiny (or levels of review) to cases involving equal protection issues. These standards are called rational, intermediate, and strict scrutiny. Over the course of judicial history, many judges have believed that women were not discriminated against and thus should not be designated as a suspect class and afforded strict scrutiny when contemplating issues of equal protection. In fact, the Supreme Court has never declared women to be a suspect classification, but rather an intermediate standard of scrutiny for sex discrimination was eventually adopted. This paper explores the questions of: What is a suspect class? What are some of the characteristics that distinguish what the courts call a “suspect class?” Are women are a suspect class? Why or why not?

Arguments Against the Death Penalty: An Analysis.
This undergraduate paper or essay argues against the death penalty, examines how it fails to deter crime, and condemns it on moral grounds. The author argues that the death penalty is cruel and unusual punishment, violates the United States Constitution, and is a relic of the earliest days of penology, when other barbaric practices such as slavery, branding, and other corporal punishments were commonplace punishments for crimes. Just as those other uncivilized practices have been outlawed, the author argues that the death penalty should be outlawed as well. It simply has no place in a civilized society.
