Legal Feminism Book Description:

In the late 1970s, feminist scholars and activists joined together to build a movement aimed at bringing feminist theory and experiences to the practice and teaching of American law. Since then, the feminist jurisprudence movement has taken root, with courts and legislatures addressing matters of sex and gender inequality, and law schools employing feminist and post-feminist theory in the classroom. In this book, Ann Scales, a founding contributor to the movement, reflects on the past, present, and future of feminist jurisprudence. Part personal memoir, part primer, and part treatise, Legal Feminism is a de-jargonized account of how feminist jurisprudence can solve traditional legal conflicts, and why it matters to anyone committed to building an equitable and progressive society.
