In this casenote the author critically examines the recent decision of Personnel Administrator v. Feeney, in which the Supreme Court of the United States advanced a two-part test to probe for a discriminatory intent behind a facially gender-neutral state law. The author sets this decision in the context of other equal protection cases and concludes that this case reflects a policy decision by the Court not to sustain equal protection challenges to facially gender-neutral laws unless the legislature has unequivocally expressed an invidious intent to discriminate.
