 About the Book 

Bringing together an international range of academics, Gender, Sexualities and Law provides a comprehensive interrogation of the range of contemporary issues - both topical and controversial - raised by the gendered character of law, legal discourseMoreBringing together an international range of academics, Gender, Sexualities and Law provides a comprehensive interrogation of the range of contemporary issues - both topical and controversial - raised by the gendered character of law, legal discourse and institutions. The gendering of law, persons and the legal profession, along with the gender bias of legal outcomes, has been a fractious, but fertile, focus of reflection. It has, moreover, been an important site of political struggle. This collection of essays offers an unrivalled examination of its various contemporary dimensions, focusing on: issues of theory and representation- violence, both national and international- reproduction and parenting- and partnership, sexuality, marriage and the family. Gender, Sexualities and Law will be invaluable for all those engaged in research and study of the law (and related fields) as a form of gendered power.
