dc.description.abstractThis thesis, written in conjunction for the School of Law and Graduate School of Philosophy offers a legal and theoretical exploration of gendered pseudonymous litigation. Pseudonymous litigation, most commonly the use of “Jane Doe" or "John Doe” seeks to provide anonymity for parties in litigation concerning sensitive matters. However, this traditional practice inserts bias into the legal process by indicating the gender of the parties. Not only does this allow for bias based on gender, but it can also allow for bias based on sexual orientation and can prevent non-binary and transgender individuals from being able to identify properly. This thesis explores these concerns and advocates for eliminating the use of gendered party names and pronouns in pseudonymous litigation.en_US
