Editorial Reviews


“An exciting, interdisciplinary collection of original articles that demonstrates the complex and dynamic interplay among history, law, and gender. This volume will help historians think more practically about legal change, challenge law professors and legal professionals to employ history with greater care, and provide all readers with fresh perspectives on interrelationships between women and the law, past and present but with an eye on the future.”
-Leigh Ann Wheeler,author of Against Obscenity: Reform and the Politics of Womanhood in America, 1873-1935

“These essays clearly indicate where women's legal history has been and anticipate where it is going based on the various kinds of feminism that emerged in the course of the twentieth century. They constitute the most comprehensive review to date of the role that gender issues have played and will continue to play in the enduring historical struggle to reconcile female and male legal rights in the United States well into the twenty-first century.”

-Joan Hoff,author of Law, Gender, and Injustice: A Legal History of U.S. Women

"Well worth reading...the variety of topics, perspectives, and outlooks confirms the richness and complexity of the field of women's history."-The Journal of American History,
