The Common Law Inside the Female Body, Paperback / softback Book

The Common Law Inside the Female Body Paperback / softback

Description

In The Common Law Inside the Female Body, Anita Bernstein explains why lawyers seeking gender progress from primary legal materials should start with the common law.

Despite its reputation for supporting conservatism and inequality, today's common law shares important commitments with feminism, namely in precepts and doctrines that strengthen the freedom of individuals and from there the struggle against the subjugation of women.

By re-invigorating both the common law - with a focus on crimes, contracts, torts, and property - and feminist jurisprudence, this highly original work anticipates a vital future for a pair of venerable jurisprudential traditions.

It should be read by anyone interested in understanding how the common law delivers an extraordinary degree of liberty and security to all persons - women included.
