80 p. 

Findings of a project to review Alaska statutes for evidence of sex discrimination is divided into 14 sections. An introduction provides an overview of the project scope, history, organization, and research procedure. A section on insurance looks at gender-based insurance rates and conversion and continuation of health benefits. Under the category of dissolution/divorce, the following types of statutes are examined: separate residences, name changes, interim spousal support and attorney's fees during divorce, grounds for divorce, child custody, and dissolution proceedings. Under the category of parent-child relationship, the study looks at statutes on parent responsibility, failure of custodial parent to permit visitations with child, out-of-wedlock children, and housing discrimination on the basis of parenthood. A section on pregnancy and related issues considers pregnancy leave for state employees, registration of fetal deaths, abortion, and prenatal blood tests. Statutes related to sexual assault and prostitution are treated in separate sections, as are inheritance and probate, partnerships, and public employee retirement benefits. A section on employment statutes considers wage discrimination and employment of the handicapped. A section on veteran's benefits examines civil service employment, veteran's preference statutes, loans, and related benefits. Additional sections look at the "head of family" designation and needy persons. (LP)
