Feminist Jurisprudence: Taking Women Seriously (American Casebook Series) by Becker, Mary, Bowman, Cynthia Grant, Torrey, Morrison.
Feminist Jurisprudence combines feminist theory and concrete legal issues in a way designed to introduce students to the complexity of many of today's questions and to the variety of feminist approaches available. Feminist Jurisprudence: Taking Women Seriously includes a variety of materials, drawn both from standard legal sources, like cases and statutes, and from less typical sources and other disciplines, in order to raise central questions about what equality might mean, the progress woman have made toward equality, and the routes from here to there. The goal is also to introduce the reader to the world of current feminist scholarship and activism. The presentation is feminist, though one pervasive theme is that there are many types of feminism, which may lead to different conclusions on important issues. The book includes the perspectives of women of different races, classes, and sexual orientation. The authors include diverse readings and raise questions from a variety of viewpoints.
