Women and Justice (Paperback)

£54.95
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

Understanding the contemporary place of women's lives requires an understanding of the historical legacies. Utilizing a sociological and feminist lens, Women and Justice examines what justice has meant in the lives of women. The book includes diverse quotes relating to the notion of justice and examines numerous issues_both civil and criminal_to bring a broader understanding. As the only sociolegal text on the market that attempts to include both civil and criminal issues between two covers, the work is framed by the working term 'quadraplexation'_a term grounded in the work of feminist theorist Juliet Mitchell. This framework helps us to better understand how and why women are treated the way they are in contemporary society, and it helps to frame our understanding of the historical legal decision-making process. Motherhood, marriage and same-sex coupling, paid and unpaid labor, education, criminal behavior, and women practitioners' lives in the justice system are among the topics included in the text. Suggestions for creating a more just world for women are also included.
