Is there Gender Bias in Key Stage 3 Science Textbooks?: Content Analysis Using the Gender Bias 14 (GB14) Measurement Tool.

Claire L. Parkin & Sharron Mackenzie
Abstract Background: In recent times, there has been much interest in the worlds of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) over why a gender gap exists.

The result of this gender gap is therefore thought to influence future career options and the longer term career trajectory. The objective of this...

None of the seven were seen in 2012, three were seen in January 2013, the remaining four in 2014. Twenty-four (7.5%) of the...

Comparison of two data capture methods and gender during clinical assessment in osteopathy: The impact on student/ tutor satisfaction ratings

Philip Bright & Ollie Bright

Differences between student and tutor satisfaction, when deploying this assessment through different methods, are not widely explored. This study explored gender bias in osteopathy students and tutors with satisfaction ratings, using the miniCEX via online and paper-based versions. Methods: An online mini-CEX was initially...

Waging War against the Woman’s Body: Limitations of the Laws of Armed Conflict and Post-War Justice mechanisms

Hannah Jasterini Latif
The following work shall critique the bodies of the laws of armed conflict and international criminal law for their inadequacy in addressing sexual assault during wartime through inappropriate measures to define, incorporate, and progressively interpret international statute to encompass sexual assault as a global crime. In order to illustrate this point one provides a socio-historic examination of the international legal development of sexual assault and an analysis of what makes it a ‘gendered’ crime. The...

International disputes must still be solved by political means

Andrew Emerson Clarke
This article considers the (in)ability of international law to ensure compliance from United Nations (UN) Member States, absent political influence. It examines whether concepts such as sovereign equality, normativity and concreteness give legal authority to international law, and further whether this ‘authority’ is respected by Member States and strictly enforced by UN governing bodies and international courts. The article explains that where sovereign rights or national interests collide the International Court of Justice (ICJ) is...

Should Colours be Protected by Trade Mark Law?

Tiffany Cox
The significance of colour as an invaluable marketing tool and source of brand differentiation provides support both for and against its protection by trade mark law. Despite the advantages afforded by trade mark protection, this article demonstrates that such protection is undesirable in a capitalist market that is supposed to foster freedom of competition. Colour depletion will unduly restrict the ability of newcomers to develop their own brand identity as the limited availability of colours...

Regulating Climate Change

Angelika Bialowas
Concerns about global climate change have led to international and national commitments to reverse the growth of greenhouse gas emissions. Given the range and complexity of the climate issue, solutions are required at all levels, shifting the regulatory architectures of the environmental system and the traditional configuration of the state. A critical examination reveals a move away from the sovereign into a polycentric arrangement that, as a result, raises questions as to what is meant...

The Absence of the ‘Surrogacy Contract’ from Judicial Constructions of Surrogacy

Alan Brown
This paper explores the absence of the ‘surrogacy contract’ from recent judicial decisions on surrogacy. In The Sexual Contract Pateman argued that, ‘[o]nly masculine beings are endowed with the attributes and capacities necessary to enter into contracts’ and therefore that the sexual contract was ignored in the establishment of patriarchal norms. The central principles of the regulation of surrogacy in the UK are set out in the Surrogacy Arrangements Act 1985; s.1A states that surrogacy...
