This groundbreaking work remains the only introductory student treatise on feminist legal theory. Martha Chamallas surveys the full range of legal issues affecting women, from rape and domestic violence to workplace discrimination and taxation issues. Her historical approach, which traces the evolution of legal feminism from the 1970s to the present, is especially valuable for today's generation of students. This revised edition explores a new territory, with the latest cases and scholarly thinking on such topics as gender and athletics, the intersection of sex, race, and sexual orientation, and international human rights. One of the most enlightening books your students are likely to read.

The first treatise of its kind, this pioneering work features:

• the only introductory survey of feminist jurisprudence, providing a concise introduction to the full range of legal issues affecting women, including gender discrimination, rape, sexual harassment, reproductive issues, and much more
• a historical overview of feminist legal theory, placing legal issues in social context, with a review of the evolving paradigms of contemporary feminism from the 1970s through the present
• a clear, energetic presentation keeping students alert and involved with concise overviews, intellectually stimulating material, and succinct, jargon-free prose

This new 2003 edition has been thoroughly updated to include:

• a look at recent advances in feminist theory and law as the field moves from the diversity issues of the 1990s to the emerging perspectives of the twenty-first century
• new developments in gender and human rights with debates over feminism and multicultural racism and the treatment of sex crimes as international human rights violations
• a new section on gender and athletics, discussing recent advances in gender discrimination law and the theory of sexual equality under Title IX
• updated materials on sexual harassment
• more on critical race theory and feminism, with new perspectives and expanded treatment of discrimination against racial groups other than African Americans
• new legal issues pertaining to work and family, including recent cases involving job discrimination against mothers and the legal strategies for addressing home-workplace conflicts
