Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In this impressive work of seminal scholarship, Professor Kenney documents and articulates a persuasive case for the value a gender analysis of legal systems and decisions, as weall as there neing more politically and judicially astute women appointed to the bench. Informed, informative, and enhanced with the inclusion of extensive notes, a substantial bibliography, and a comprehensive index, Gender and Justice is very strongly recommended as a core addition to academic library Gender Studies reference collections."Library Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review

“Throughout the book, Kenney critiques essentialist frameworks and what has been left out of public law scholarship with a wit that makes a reader laugh out loud, not a common reaction to reading studies of judging.”Susan M. Sterett, Department of Political Science, University of Denver, Law and Politics Book Review
