Rate this:
This volume presents a unique approach to the study of the relationship between women and the American legal system. Part One examines the role of the Supreme Court in promoting or impeding equality for women. Part Two considers the treatment of women in court as offenders; victims of rape and spouse abuse; and divorce litigants. Part Three reveals the barriers to the recruitment of women to positions of authority in the justice system, both as judges and as court administrators. Finally, the volume raises political and policy options for making the court system more equitable for women.
