Debating Women's Equality: Toward a Feminist Theory of Law from a European Perspective
In this volume, Ute Gerhard places women's rights at the centre of legal philosophy and discusses this struggle for equality as a driving force in the history of law. Focusing on Europe and taking the course of German feminism and law as primary examples, she incorporates the various social contexts in which questions of equality and gender difference have been raised into an analysis that challenges misconceptions about the principle of equality itself.
