Discrimination, Old and New

Discrimination, Old and New

(p.11) 1 Discrimination, Old and New

Zachary Kramer

Oxford University Press

Chapter 1 examines the stories and cases of three women, each of whom was unsuccessful in her attempt to use civil rights laws to redress an individual wrong. The transition from old to new discrimination is a story about identity. Despite their different jobs and distinct life experiences, the women in Chapter 1 share a common bond. They are outsiders. Discrimination evolves. While it used to be aimed at discrete outsider groups, discrimination is increasingly about the individual. And existing civil rights law is not equipped to deal with this shift. We need a new language to explain modern discrimination. Religious discrimination law holds the key.

Keywords:   old discrimination, new discrimination, identity, social change, rights, wrongs
