Editorial Reviews

Review

"This outstanding collection of essays both illuminates and complicates a range of gender justice problems in intimate and public arenas within and across national boundaries. The "citizenship" of the title stands for democratic inclusion, and is animated by an aspirational vision of "equal citizenship" for women and men. Yet the volume's editors recognize that the citizenship concept is itself fraught and double-edged, and must be deployed self-critically. `Gender Equality' is comprised of a set of original essays by a range of distinguished scholars working at the intersection of feminist legal and political theory. The volume offers a rigorous overview of many of the political and theoretical conundrums facing advocates of equal justice for women today."
--Linda Bosniak, Rutgers University School of Law


"This rich cross-national and comparative collection explores and assesses the progress of women toward equal citizenship, identifying multiple dimensions of citizenship and theorizing citizenship in new arenas. Posing complex and provocative questions, Gender Equality will generate conversations between legal scholars and political scientists and will challenge empirical researchers and theorists to consider more fully what equal citizenship requires."
--Carol Nackenoff, Department of Political Science, Swarthmore College


"This volume is an exciting collection that will be essential reading for those concerned with gender equality and citizenship across myriad disciplines."
--Leti Volpp, University of California Berkeley School of Law


" A treasure box of insight on equal citizenship, a concept with great constitutional and normative promise for advancing gender equality"
--Jane Mansbridge, Adams Professor, Kennedy School, Harvard University


"Professors Linda McClain and Joanna Grossman have compiled an enlightening collection of articles that address the barriers that remain to full gender equality. Departing from traditional analysis, the collection employs the language of equal citizenship to reflect on society's progress toward achieving equal status for all individuals. ... By emphasizing the exclusionary and masculine underpinnings of current conceptions of citizenship, Professors McClain and Grossman's collection recognizes a need to regender citizenship in order to eliminate the gender biases that remain present despite contemporary gender-neutral definitions of citizenship."
--Harvard Law Review


"In sum, this collective volume provides a rich array of theoretical perspectives and empirical analysis, which bring together formal, substantive and discursive dimensions of women's precarious citizenship in a US and international context."
--Canadian Journal of Political Science

Book Description

This volume presents a collection of original works by distinguished scholars in law, political science, and women's studies that examines the persisting inequality between formal commitments to gender equality and equal citizenship - in the laws and constitutions of many countries, as well as in international human rights documents - and the reality of women's lives.

Format: Hardcover
Does anyone else notice how biased and bigoted the title and description of this book are? If the authors and editors of this collection were truly honest in pursuing gender equality, they would not focus only upon women's issues and the "gaps between formal commitments to gender equality and the reality of women's lives." Academics should not be dualistic in selling bigotry, while claiming to oppose bigotry--both genders deserve equal treatment in our societies. Past inequalities do not justify enforcing inequality through a reversal of treatment.
