Women and the Law Stories
Edited By ELIZABETH M. SCHNEIDER & STEPHANIE M. WILDMAN
Foundation Press | Thomson Reuters (2011)
This book examines landmark cases establishing women’s legal rights. Each chapter discusses a case and examines the litigants, history, parties, strategies, and theoretical implications. Subject areas covered are common to many women and law casebooks, including history, constitutional law, reproductive freedom, the workplace, the family, and women in the legal profession, domestic violence, and rape.
The book can be used as a supplement to any law school course, as a text for courses in gender and law and feminist jurisprudence, and could also serve as an undergraduate or graduate textbook in women’s studies or in other interdisciplinary fields.
