Gender Law and Policy touches on every area of life—topics that reach us all—such as employment, family, education, and sexual identity. Katharine T. Bartlett and Deborah L. Rhode offer a theoretical framework that supports thoughtful and systematic analysis, alongside over 100 practical questions of contemporary law and policy.

Written by a luminary author team, Gender Law and Policy features:

lucid introductions in every chapter that illuminate key issues
six different theoretical perspectives that give focus to each chapter and encourage students to:

• view the issues from a variety of perspectives
• problem solve
• see the complex ways in which gender permeates the law
• critically analyze the values and limitations of each perspective

more than 100 Putting Theory Into Practice problems that challenge the reader to apply legal principles to concrete and realistic situations
timely coverage of foundational and cutting-edge issues, from employment law, affirmative action, and sexual harassment, to global trafficking, LGBT issues, and women's health
a rich selection of cases and materials tailored for undergraduates
incisive commentary by leading scholars and policymakers
Notes that provide background information and context
Reading Questions that suggest key themes
Definition boxes that explain legal terms

Ideal for a variety of Women's Studies and Law & Policy courses, Gender Law and Policy is both personally relevant and intellectually rigorous, balancing legal theory, policy analysis, and practical problems in a text written specifically for undergraduates.
