  •     Imagine that you have been summoned for jury duty in the United States. If you are selected to be on the jury,     you will be hearing a rape case where a 23-year-old female alleges sexual assault. In order to select the jury (a     process known by the Latin term voir dire), both the prosecutor and defense attorney question the jury pool to     identify and dismiss for cause people who have strong opinions about the subject matter, who already know     about the case, or who may be biased for or against either party to the trial. Attorneys may also dismiss     members of the jury pool who they think will not be favorable to their case. These types of dismissals are called     peremptory challenges and the attorneys have a limited number of them.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  During the process of jury selection, you notice the prosecutors are using their limited peremptory challenges to     dismiss most of the young women from the jury pool. You find this peculiar, given that young women would seem     to be most favorable to the prosecution’s case.
