The primary focus is on questions of strategy: how should feminists working in law devise strategies which are effective in securing their goals? How do they assess the success or failure of strategies already pursued? How can theoretical insights inform and be informed by such an exercise? In this context the book focuses on a selection of contemporary issues including pregnancy and the workplace, sexual harassment, pornography, family and property law, reproductive rights, immigration and sex discrimination law. The material embraces both British and international perspectives, particularly from North America and Europe. The general theme of the book is thus to strive to bridge the gap between theory and practice by creating the possibility of a genuine dialogue between feminists working in academia and in practice.
