A bit outdated, especially the references/resources in the back, but this is still a good handbook to keep around. I'm not at all convinced that women "need" a specific legal guide, because of some paranoid fear that women are always going to get screwed over and not know how to deal with it. But I guess if you *do* feel that way, this must be an invaluable resource.
