Editorial 14(I)
In this issue Trevor Gates and Colleen Rodgers assess the progress achieved on
rights for lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) workers in the US. They note the
advances made but also the persistence of discrimination against these employees.
The authors argue that the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT), combined with
changing attitudes towards LGB people, has opened up a window of opportunity for
a federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act in the US. The background to the
repeal of DADT is considered as well as the opportunities for change its repeal has
opened up, using John Kingdon's work on policy shifts.
