Summary

This book explores the relationship between law and gender and in particular the relevance of gendered analyses to conceptions of law and legal theory. The book considers why gender is thought to be formally irrelevant to law notwithstanding its centrality as a key category of social organization. The focus of the book includes analyses of case law, consideration of the historical role of gender in law, the relevance of gender to modern jurisprudence and agendered interrogation of ideas of legal reason. The book will be of interest to anyone engaged with questions of law and legal theory and will also be of relevance to scholars and students in the fields gender, sexuality and feminism.
