Editorial Reviews

Review

"This pathbreaking study offers new and compelling insights into the ways that workplaces institutionalize gender inequality and the capacity and constraints of legal rights in challenging social injustice."

Deborah L. Rhode
Director, Center on the Legal Profession
E.W. McFarland Professor of Law
Stanford Law School




"Do legal rights produce social change? Albiston gives a more nuanced answer than a simple yes or no, making this book required reading not only for anyone interested in gender and work-family policy, but also for those focused on social inequality, jurisprudence, legal history and organizational change."

Joan C. Williams
Distinguished Professor of Law, 1066 Foundation Chair and Director, Center for WorkLife Law
University of California, Hastings College of the Law


Book Description

Drawing on theoretical frameworks from social constructivism and new institutionalism, this study explains how institutions transform Family and Medical Leave Act rights to recreate systems of power and inequality but at the same time also provide opportunities for law to change social structure.
