Editors Rhode (Stanford Law School) and Sanger (Columbia U. School of Law) present 28 essays under the headings gender and rights, sources of well-being and harm, family, violence, work, and political process and participation. Specific topics include gender, property, and land rights in economic analysis and policy- the role of law in the everyday life of women- group identity and womens rights in family law- comparative law and the same-sex marriage debate- unintended consequences of rights-based interventions to support battered women- responses to workplace harassment in European, German, and US law- gender mainstreaming and the composition of the European Court of Justice- and effects of gender parity in French municipal elections. The essays were originally published in such publications as the Journal of Legal Studies, Fordham Law Review, Feminist Legal Studies, and International Journal of the Sociology of Law between 1987 and 2003.
