Equal Protection of the Laws: Sex is Not a Suspect Classification; Kahn v. Shevin, 94 S. Ct. 1734 (1974)
Thomas, Gregg Darrow
University of Florida Law Review, 27, 1, 288-295, F 74
In Kahn v. Shevin the Supreme Court upheld a Florida Supreme Court ruling that a state tax exemption for widows was not in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment. The author discusses this and earlier sex discrimination cases, holding that a strict scrutiny test in such cases would promote equality of the sexes. (JT)
