"Every social scientist interested in women's issues needs this invaluable collection." --Barbara Bergmann "D. Kelly Weisberg's distinguished volume will provide one-stop shopping for newspaper editors, scholars, political activists, and public officials who want to learn how gender analysis applies to legal thought." --Barbara J. Nelson, University of Minnesota "Feminist jurisprudence is the cauldron in which some of the most creative feminist thoughts are brewing. Their release into our sociopolitical environment will bring us somewhat closer to creating a legal system in which the interests of all persons are indeed regarded with equal respect and consideration. Anglo-American law has been in need of a feminist transformation for some time. Weisberg's anthology suggests that the moment of metamorphosis is upon us." --Rosemarie Tong, Thatcher Professor in Philosophy and Medical Humanities, Davidson College "Professor Weisberg has successfully undertaken the daunting task of presenting many of the diverse strands of feminist legal theory in a coherent, organized framework. The ideas presented in this stimulating collection of essays are at the cutting-edge of legal theory." --Stephanie M. Wildman, Professor of Law, University of San Francisco
